Tim Taylor (born 4 October 1982 in Derby, England) is a former rugby union player who played at fly-half.

Taylor made his first appearance for Gloucester when he came off the bench against Worcester in the LV= Cup. A week later he started his first game against Harlequins at the Twickenham Stoop in the same competition and scored a try and a match winning conversion to send Gloucester into the semi-finals. Taylor initially signed on loan but after just three appearances he signed a two-year contract.[2] Taylor went on to score one more try in a Guinness Premiership defeat away to Newcastle Falcons. In 2012, Taylor signed a two-year contract extension with Gloucester until the end of the 2013/14 season.[3]

On 6 March 2014, Taylor announced retirement from rugby with immediate effect because of his long-term knee injuries.[4] He remained with Gloucester as their new Kicking and Skills Coach.[5]
