Alec Hepburn, born on March 30, 1993, is an English rugby union player who currently plays as a loosehead prop for the Exeter Chiefs in the Aviva Premiership.

Hepburn was born in Perth, Australia, and later moved with his family to Hopetoun, a small town on the south coast of Western Australia.

During the 2013–14 season, Hepburn had a stint with London Welsh in the RFU Championship. He then returned to his hometown of Perth in 2014 and joined Cottesloe Rugby Club.

In January 2015, Hepburn made the move to Exeter Chiefs. He was part of the team that reached the final of the 2015–16 Premiership but lost to Saracens. The following season, Exeter Chiefs emerged victorious in the Premiership final against Wasps, claiming their first Premiership title.

However, Hepburn was unable to play in the final due to injury.

Hepburn has represented England at various levels. He started for the England U20 side that won the Junior World Cup final against Wales in 2013. In June 2016, he scored a try for England Saxons in a tour game against South Africa A. He was also included in the England squad for the 2018 Six Nations Championship.

Known for his dynamic playing style, Hepburn has been a valuable asset to the Exeter Chiefs since joining the club. His performances have contributed to the team's success, including reaching multiple Premiership finals and winning titles.

With over 150 first-team appearances, he continues to be a regular and influential player in the Chiefs' match-day plans. Hepburn's strength in the set-piece and his ability to make impactful runs on the field are key attributes that enhance his game.

In 2020, he played a crucial role in Exeter Chiefs' triumph in both the Gallagher Premiership and the Heineken Champions Cup, featuring in the finals held at Bristol's Ashton Gate and Twickenham Stadium, respectively.
