Jason Strange (born 8 October 1973 in Tredegar, Wales) is a former Welsh rugby union player and now coach. An outside half, he was a prolific goal-kicker. Strange played his club rugby for a number of clubs in Wales including Pontypridd RFC, Ebbw Vale RFC, Newport RFC before joining Bristol RFC and Leeds Carnegie where he signed a 2-year contract to take him to the end of 2010. He was called up to Wales' squad for the 2000 Six Nations Championship and was on the bench against Scotland,[1] however he was ultimately not capped at that level.

In 2010 he joined Ebbw Vale RFC as the coach. At the end of the 2013/14 season, they were promoted back to the Welsh Premiership League with a few games to spare.[2] After 5 years with Ebbw Vale, Strange has been hired by the WRU as a coach for the under 20s national side.[3]
