André Neal Vos (born 9 January 1975) is a former South African rugby union player who played as back row for Eastern Province (South Africa), Queensland Reds (Australia), The Cats (South Africa), The Lions (South Africa) and Harlequins (England) until his retirement in 2007. He also captained the Springboks.
He made his first provincial debut for Eastern Province in 1995.
He made his international debut against Italy in Port Elizabeth on 12 June 1999 as a replacement. The final score was 74 -3, a win for the Springboks. He was in the starting 15 for the next match in Durban. He was in and out of the starting 15 for the next eight test matches, starting in only 3.
André retired from international rugby in 2002, saying, "Physically I am no longer up to Springbok rugby."
He was able to obtain a free transfer to England, as his English-born wife Caroline holds a British passport.
