J.C. 'Clarrie' Ives (1890-1956) was an Australian rugby league player for the North Sydney Bears in the NSWRFL.

A tough prop-forward, Clarrie Ives started his first grade career with North Sydney as a 30-year-old in 1920 and was a member of the club's golden era of the early 1920s. Ives won two premierships with North Sydney in 1921 & 1922, and was club captain in his final season in 1924. He also played for New South Wales on four occasions and Australia. He played in one test match for Australia in the second test against Great Britain during the 1924 Ashes series. He is listed on the Australian Players Register as Kangaroo No. 119.[1] His position of choice was at prop-forward and his younger brother Bill Ives was also a rugby league player. He was selected to go on the 1921–22 Kangaroo tour of Great Britain and played in 6 tour games but no tests.[2] He retired in 1925, aged 35.[3]
