Clive Anthony Ulyate (born 11 December 1933) was a South African sportsman who played international rugby union for South Africa. He also played first-class cricket.

Ulyate, a fly-half, played his early rugby at Hilton College, before moving on to the University of Witwatersrand RFC. He would later play provincially for Transvaal. He was capped four times for South Africa during the British Lions tour of South Africa in 1955. In the Test in Port Elizabeth, which the Springboks won, Ulyate scored a try and kicked a drop goal. He played three further Tests for South Africa, in their 1956 tour of New Zealand.[1]

He was an all-rounder on the cricket field and played four first-class matches.[2] His first appearance was in the 1955/56 Currie Cup season, playing for Transvaal against Natal. He had minimal impact on the match but did claim the wicket of Test opener Trevor Goddard. It was until 1964, with Eastern Province, that he played another first-class match. He played once for Eastern Province in 1964/65 and then appeared twice for them in the 1965/66 Currie Cup. His best performance came in the 1964/65 fixture, which was against North Eastern Transvaal. He scored the only half-century of his career, 55, in the first innings and then took 3/58.[3]
