Alfred Beranaliva Uluinayau (born 20 February 1970) is a New Zealand rugby union player currently coaching professionally in Japan. He has represented Fiji as a fullback and is also a former Auckland player and All Black trialist.

He made his Fiji team debut against the Springboks in 1996 and took over the No.15 jersey in early 1999 when Jonetani Waqa ruptured his Achilles tendon. He then became Brad Johnstone’s first choice fullback at the 1999 Rugby World Cup and scored a memorable try against France in Toulouse.

He also scored the decisive try in the 2001 Pacific Tri-nations final against Samoa, cutting inside Samoan veteran center To’o Vaega to touch down under the posts.

He is now the Backs Coach for Fiji
