James Broadhurst (born 1 December 1987) is a New Zealand rugby union lock who plays provincial rugby for Taranaki, Super Rugby for the Hurricanes, and is a current All Black. He was also a national representative at the under-19 and under-21 levels.
Broadhurst made his debut for New Zealand on 25 July 2015 against South Africa but was subbed off at half-time. In September that year Broadhurst received two serious head knocks while representing Taranaki and was taken off the field due to concussion. Broadhurst has not played a game of rugby since then, with symptoms of concussion still ongoing for him as of early 2017.
His brother is Japan rugby player Michael Broadhurst.
