Josh Strauss (born 23 October 1986) is a South African-born Scottish rugby union footballer. His regular playing position is either flanker or eighthman. He has captained the Lions in Super Rugby and the Golden Lions in the Currie Cup. Strauss has previously played for the Boland Cavaliers and Maties.
It was announced on 11 September 2012 that Strauss signed for Glasgow Warriors on a three-year deal. He quickly became a regular in the Warriors' side, captaining them frequently, and was an integral part of their 2014–2015 Pro12 title triumph. He was named in the Pro12 Dream Team at the end of the 2014/15 season.
Strauss became eligible to play for Scotland in September 2015, and was named in the 31-man squad for the 2015 Rugby World Cup. He made his much-anticipated debut from the bench in the team's opening match victory over Japan. However, Strauss will be leaving Glasgow Warriors in the summer of 2017. On 28 February 2017, Strauss signed a three-year contract with Aviva Premiership club Sale Sharks prior to the 2017-18 season.
