Mike Beckham (born 22 May 1970, in Auckland, New Zealand) is a Cook Islands former international rugby union player for Glasgow Warriors at the Loosehead Prop position. He was signed by Kevin Greene, the Glasgow coach, in 1997. Previously the time Beckham had a 9 to 5 job and was playing rugby for the New Zealand Army team. He was capped internationally by the Cook Islands.He said of the move: "I came here to get a taste of European rugby. The opportunity came through Kevin Greene. I enjoyed the game against West Hartlepool at the weekend, despite a calf strain, and it was good to learn about the style of play. At home we have more short phases, we attack from anywhere and we bring it back to the pack when there is no way through."As well as pre-season friendlies against West Hartlepool, Caledonia Reds and Brumbies, he played 4 times in the Heineken Cup for Glasgow in the 1997-98 season.

He was also part of the Hawks side that won the Scottish Cup and the then Scottish Division 2.He signed for Leeds Tykes in 1998 the following season.Beckham now works in logistics & operations and project management in New Zealand.
