Andrew "Andy" Yates is a professional rugby league player. Yates currently plays for Wakefield Trinity (Wildcats) in the Super League. He previously played for Leeds Rhinos, who he joined from Hunslet Hawks. He made his Rhinos début against Widnes Vikings on 13 February 2015. His position of preference is prop and he signed as a junior from local amateur side Thatto Heath Crusaders. Yates made his first team début in 2008's Super League XIII but did not make any further appearances in 2009's Super League XIV.[2] Yates left St Helens for Hunslet Hawks at the end of 2010 due to a restricted amount of first team appearances, and not being selected in Royce Simmons' first team squad for 2011.

A serious Achilles injury sidelined him at the start of 2014 season before he tore his biceps muscle in his come back game with Hunslet midway through 2014 season. [3]
