René Emile Henri Boudreaux (27 November 1880–8 September 1915) was a French rugby union player.
Boudreaux was born in Paris and played as a prop forward for Sporting Club Universitaire de France (fr). He was twice capped for France in the 1910 Five Nations Championship. He made his first appearance at Swansea against Wales on New Years Day and his second and last against Scotland at Inverleith on 22 January.
During the First World War Boudreaux was recalled to serve in the French Army. He was killed in action near Aubérive while serving as a lieutenant with the 103rd Infantry Regiment of the 7th Infantry Division.
The Five Nations Championship first came into being in 1910 when France joined the annual Home Nations tournament. Boudreaux played in two of the four games, against Wales and Scotland, in both of which the French were heavily defeated.
