Ronald James John (Ron) Wright (1913 – 14 June 1968) was an Australian cricket test match umpire.

He umpired 13 Test matches between 1948 and 1959. His first match was between Australia and India at Adelaide on 23 January to 28 January 1948, a match won by Australia by an innings, with Don Bradman scoring 201 (following a century in each innings in the previous Test), Lindsay Hassett scoring 198 not out, and Ray Lindwall taking 7 wickets in the second innings. Wright’s partner in this match was George Borwick.

His last match was between Australia and England at Melbourne on 13 February to 18 February 1959, where the home team won comfortably. Les Townsend, officiating in his only Test match, was Wright’s partner in this match.
