Diego Zarzosa Peña (b. 25 December 1975 in Valladolid) is a Spanish rugby union hooker who plays for CR El Salvador in the División de Honor.

Zarzosa represented Spain during the 1999 Rugby World Cup. In 2007, Zarzosa signed a six-week contract with English giants Harlequins after Samoan Tani Fuga was called to the World Cup squad and Chris Brooker suffered a shoulder injury. He was not able to debut in the Premiership. Later that year, he became the second Spanish-born rugby player to play for the Barbarians.[citation needed]

Zarzosa helds currently 45 caps for Spain, with 3 tries scored, 15 points in aggregate.
