Clive Williams (born 2 November 1948)[1] is a former Wales international rugby union player. He toured twice with the British and Irish Lions, to New Zealand in 1977 and to South Africa in 1980.[2]

Williams came to prominence playing for Aberavon RFC where he became a formidable scrummager under the coaching of the ex-Welsh International prop – Phil Morgan.

He was selected for the 1977 Lions tour but remarkably on his return to his club, he lost his place to the then un-capped John Richardson.

Williams left the club and joined Swansea RFC and was again selected to play for the 1980 Lions.
