Henry Roberts (1862 – 1 January 1949) was a New Zealand rugby union player. A halfback, Roberts represented Wellington and Canterbury at a provincial level, and was a member of the first New Zealand national side, the All Blacks, in 1884. He played seven matches for the All Blacks, none of them internationals. His son Teddy, also a halfback, was a member of the All Blacks in 1913, making them the team's first father–son representatives.

Following the death of James O'Donnell in 1942, Roberts held the distinction of being the oldest living All Black.

Roberts also played first-class cricket for Wellington between 1883 and 1890.
