Matt Symons (born 4 August 1989) is an English Rugby Union player who currently plays for Harlequins F.C. in the Aviva Premiership.

Symons has had an interesting route to the top. He started out in the Saracens youth system before leaving to pursue a career in rowing. An injury to his forearm ended his rowing career and saw him make a return to rugby. In 2011, he started playing professionally for Esher for whom he made 14 appearances.

2012 saw him head south to New Zealand where he set up base in Christchurch and initially saw action for the Canterbury B side and Crusaders Knights development team before being named in the Canterbury squad for the 2013 ITM Cup. He became a regular starter in his first full season and earned himself a Super Rugby contract with two-time champions the Chiefs for the 2014 Super Rugby season.

On 25 March 2015, Symons returned to his home nation to sign for London Irish in the Aviva Premiership from the 2015-16 season following Chiefs assistant coach Tom Coventry to the English side.

On 28 June it was confirmed that Symons had terminated his contract with London Irish after their relegation to the Green King IPA Championship and signed for former London rival Wasps.

On the 23rd May 2018 Symons signed for Harlequins F.C.
