Luke Adamson (born (1987-11-17) 17 November 1987 (age 29) in Lowton) is an English rugby league and rugby union footballer who currently plays for Dewsbury in the Kingstone Press Championship. He formerly played at club level for Bath Rugby and also Leigh East ARLFC, Salford in Super League and Halifax in the Kingstone Press Championship, as a Second-row.

Adamson attended St Ambrose College in Hale Barns where he made his mark in Rugby Union as a strong running centre. He also represented Cheshire but his Rugby League apprenticeship was served with the famous Leigh East amateur club where he spent three years. He made his Salford début versus Wakefield Trinity in 2006 and has been ever present since then. He is also an England academy player, representing his country versus Australia.[citation needed]

At the end of the 2012 Super League season, Adamson left Salford due to the club's financial troubles, and returned to Rugby Union when he signed for Bath Rugby.[2][3]

His brother Toby Adamson also plays for Dewsbury.[4]
