Adrian Christopher Garvey (born 25 June 1968 in Bulawayo) is a former Zimbabwean-born South African rugby union player. He played as a tighthead prop, and was known for his mobility and ball skills.
He is one of the few players to have competed at the Rugby World Cup for two different countries. He had 10 caps for Zimbabwe, from 1990 to 1993, scoring 2 tries, 10 points in aggregate. He played three games at the 1991 Rugby World Cup, scoring two tries at the 51-12 loss to Scotland, at 9 October 1991.
He later became a South African naturalized citizen and decided to play for South Africa. He had 28 caps, from 1996 to 1999, scoring 4 tries, 20 points in aggregate. He played two times at the Tri Nations, being a member of the winning side in 1998. He was called for the 1999 Rugby World Cup, playing a single game in the 47-3 win over Spain, in Murrayfield, at 10 October 1999. That would be his last game for the "Springboks".
Garvey made the popular move from rugby to mountain biking after retiring from professional sport and participated in the 2011 Absa Cape Epic mountain bike stage race.
