Peter Browne (born 25 October 1987) is a professional rugby union player for Ulster Rugby, having left London Welsh at the end of the 2014-15 season.

He was previously at Harlequins and Newcastle Falcons.

Educated at Dean Close School, Cheltenham, Browne went on to become a theology student at Durham University. Browne made his first team debut for the Newcastle Falcons against London Wasps during the 2007/8 season.

Capped by England Students that same year, he can play at either back row (Number eight) and second row (Lock). He is also eligible to play for Ireland through his father, Rev. Leonard Browne who is the current Headmaster of Dean Close Preparatory School.
