Victor Eriakpo Ubogu (born 8 September 1964 in Nigeria) is a former Bath and England rugby union player. He also played, whilst still at university, for Moseley.

He attended West Buckland School where he received the school's top award, the Fortescue Medal, and St Anne's College, Oxford. In 1992 he became a prop for the England national rugby union team where he remained until 1999. He also owned a sports bar and did a nude interview on TV[citation needed] and now owns and runs a travel company, offering hospitality at sporting events.

Combining the size and strength typical of a prop with unusual speed for a player specializing in this position, Ubogu was often a highly effective ball-carrier in broken play. Against well-drilled international defences he sometimes lacked penetration, but he frequently embarrassed club-level opposition.[citation needed]

In 2001, Ubogu appeared on Lily Savage's Blankety Blank.[1]
