Austin Robert Loughnan (15 June 1851 9 October 1926) was an Australian sportsman who played five first-class cricket matches for Victoria between 1871 and 1875 [1] and played Australian rules football for Melbourne Football Club in the Victorian Football Association (VFA).

First-class cricket is an official classification of the highest-standard international or domestic matches in the sport of cricket. A first-class match is of three or more days' scheduled duration between two sides of eleven players each and is officially adjudged to be worthy of the status by virtue of the standard of the competing teams. Matches must allow for the teams to play two innings each although, in practice, a team might play only one innings or none at all.
