Anthony 'Tony' Franklin (born December 18, 1950) is a former Australian rules footballer who played with South Melbourne in the Victorian Football League (VFL) during the 1970s.

Originally from the Tasmanian club Penguin, Franklin played mostly as a ruckman and half forward in his two seasons at South Melbourne.

After leaving South Melbourne he spent some time in the VFA playing for Sandringham. When Ricky Quade resigned suddenly as South Melbourne's coach midway through the 1984 season, Franklin filled in as senior coach for a game against Collingwood which they lost by 31 points. He later served as their Chairman of Selectors.
