Alan John George Morley MBE (born 25 June 1950 in Bristol, England) is a former English rugby union player. He played a record number of 519 times for Bristol Rugby, scoring 384 tries, between 1968 and 1986. He holds the world record for the number of tries scored in first class rugby, at 479. He won 7 England caps and was selected for the 1974 Lions tour but didn't make the Test side, having to compete with J.J. Williams, Billy Steele and Andy Irvine. The highlight of his international career was probably scoring a try on his international début on 3 June 1972, against South Africa when an unfancied England side won 18-9.
