Alan Augustus Adams (8 May 1883 – 28 July 1963) was a New Zealand born sportsman who played international rugby union for England. He also played first-class cricket with Otago.

Adams made two first-class appearances for Otago. A batsman, he played both of his matches against Auckland, in 1906 and then 1908.[1]

While in London, to study medicine, Adams was called up to the England national rugby union team.[2] He was capped for the first and only time in their eight-point win over France at the Parc des Princes. The fixture was part of England's championship winning 1910 Five Nations campaign.[3]
