Profile

Andries Bekker is a South African lock who plays for the Stormers in Super Rugby and he made his Test debut in 2008 against Wales in a 43-17 victory in Bloemfontein.

His 6ft10 frame helps him charge forward with the ball in hand and his performances have seen him featuring regularly as a replacement for the Springboks since his debut.

He came on as a replacement in the first two Tests against the British & Irish Lions in 2009 as the Springboks won the series. He is also the son of Hennie, who played two Tests for South Africa in 1981.

After sitting out the Springboks northern hemisphere tour in 2010 due to a back injury, Bekker looked to be back in contention for the 2011 World Cup. However, his dreams were dashed in July 2011 following an announcement that the lock would have to undergo knee surgery.
