Tomos George L. Shanklin (born 24 November 1979 in Harrow) is a Welsh rugby union player who plays at Outside Centre for Cardiff Blues and Wales.

Shanklin is the son of Jim Shanklin who won four caps for Wales. He played club rugby for London Welsh and then Saracens before joining Cardiff Blues in 2003.

He played for Wales at Under 19, Under 21 and Wales A levels and made his first international appearance for the senior side against Japan in Tokyo in the summer of 2001, scoring two tries. He made his debut in the Six Nations Championship against France in 2001. 32 years previously his father Jim had won his first international cap against the same opponents.

At first Shanklin was regarded as a "super sub" in the Welsh side, but later established himself in the starting lineup. He produced some notable performances in the 2004 Autumn internationals, scoring eight tries in the four games. This included four tries against Romania and a spectacular try against New Zealand. He is sometimes played as a wing but started all the 2005 Six Nations matches in his preferred position at centre. He has won 34 caps for Wales, scoring 16 tries.

He was selected for the 2005 British and Irish Lions tour to New Zealand but suffered a knee injury early in the tour which meant that he had to be replaced. As a result he also missed the majority of the 2005-06 season.
