Trevor Berghan (13 July 1914 – 23 September 1998) was a New Zealand rugby union player. A first five-eighth, Berghan represented Otago at a provincial level, and was a member of the New Zealand national side, the All Blacks, on their 1938 tour of Australia. He played six matches for the All Blacks on that tour, including three internationals.[1]

Berghan studied at the University of Otago, graduating with a Bachelor of Dental Surgery in 1941.[2] He was commissioned as a lieutenant in the New Zealand Dental Corps in June 1941,[3] and later promoted to captain. He was seconded to the Royal New Zealand Navy with the rank of temporary surgeon lieutenant (D) in July 1943.[4]
