Antony Lawley 'Tim' Warr (15 May 1913 – 29 January 1995) was an English rugby union player who represented the England national rugby union team. He also played first-class cricket with Oxford University.

Warr's two national caps came during the 1934 Home Nations Championship, where England claimed the triple crown. A winger, he scored a try on debut against Wales and made his other appearance against Ireland.[1]

He played club rugby for Old Leodiensians before joining Wakefield during the 1936/37 season, scoring fourteen tries in twelve games in the two seasons he spent at the club. He also played seven times for Yorkshire and gained a blue for Oxford.[2]

As a cricketer, Warr kept wicket for Oxford University in four first-class matches in 1933 and 1934. He spent some time playing with the Army during the 1940s and in 1950 he represented the Marylebone Cricket Club in a first-class match against Ireland in Dublin.[3]

During the second world war, he was the officer in charge of PT at Sandhurst [4]

A school teacher by profession, he taught at Leeds Grammar School [2] before teaching at Harrow School for over thirty years [5] where he designed the Harrow first XV pitch.[6]
