Ralph Matema (born June 19, 1982 in Bulawayo) is a Zimbabwean footballer. He currently plays for the South African side Jomo Cosmos. He is also a member of the Zimbabwe national football team.

"Raru", as he is popularly known, is the reigning top scorer of the Zimbabwean CBZ Premier League after netting 19 times in the 2006 season. In 2007, he scored 10 goals in 11 games but left Highlanders FC to join Orlando Pirates for the 2007/2008 season. [1]

The left-footed striker, currently plays for jomo cosmos from Witbank spurs, leveled the scores in the second half with a typical poacher's header that flew into the far post. [2]
