Edwin Peter Andrews (born 18 March 1977 in Cape Town, South Africa) is a former South African rugby union footballer. His usual position is at prop, and he has played for the Springboks. He played for the Stormers in the Super 14 between 2003 and 2007.
Andrews made his international debut for South Africa on Saturday, the 12 June 2004 in Bloemfontein in a match against Ireland. South Africa won the match 31-17. He also played in the subsequent match against the Irish in Cape Town which was also won by South Africa 25-17. He was also a reserve in the 53-18 win over Wales in Pretoria.
He went on to play against the Pacific Islanders team in Gosford before he was included in the Springboks' 2004 Tri Nations series squad. He played four tests during the series, two tests against the All Blacks and the Wallabies. The Springboks went on to win the Tri Nations that year. He earned another three caps during the end of year tests in the northern hemisphere.
He next played for South Africa on 18 June 2005 in a 30-all draw against France in Durban, as well as playing in subsequent matches against Australia, and then against the All Blacks in the 2005 Tri Nations series. He earned another two caps at the end of the year, playing Argentina in Buenos Aires and France in Paris.
He retired from professional rugby in 2007 due to spinal stenosis which was complicated by a recurring back injury. During this time he founded a non-profit organisation, Joshua Foundation with Stormers team mate Tonderai Chavhanga.
