Yann Thomas (born 16 April 1990 in Bristol) is a rugby union footballer, currently playing in the Aviva Premiership for Gloucester Rugby. He plays as a prop.

The 26-year-old prop joined the Gloucester Rugby Academy from West Country rivals Bristol before the 2008–9 season and impressed enough to earn a senior deal.

Made his full senior debut for the club in the LV= Cup in 2009–10, and has also played as a dual-registered player for Moseley. On 2 April 2013, it was announced that Thomas had signed a two-year contract extension to keep him at Gloucester until the end of the 2014–15 season.[2] On 25 April 2015, Thomas has agreed a new contract extension with Gloucester.[3]

Yann Thomas has often been referred to as Gloucester most reliable prop due to his experience of playing at both lose head and tight head when required. Yann Thomas also had the highest win rate over any other Gloucester prop during the 2015-2016 season with 86% when starting.
