Player biography


Nicknamed ‘Andre The Giant’, Andre Esterhuizen joined Harlequins from the Durban-based Sharks during the backend of the 2019/20 season.

An abrasive yet skilful South African centre, Esterhuizen made his debut for Harlequins in the London-derby against the Exiles.

Esterhuizen represented the Leopards at the famous South African Schoolboy competition, the Craven Week in 2011, before linking up with the Sharks after school.

Working his way through the ranks at the Sharks Academy, he featured for the South African Under-20 side that narrowly lost to England in the 2014 U20 World Championship.

Esterhuizen broke into the Sharks Super Rugby squad ahead of the 2014 season having scored a try against Saracens in a pre-season friendly.

Continued fine form with the Sharks saw him make his debut for South Africa in Rassie Erasmus’ first Test in charge of the Springboks against Wales in Washington in 2017.

Despite being a regular member of the Springbok squad, Esterhuizen narrowly missed out on a place in the Springbok Rugby World Cup in 2019.

Quickly establishing himself as a first starter at Harlequins, the centre started and scored in the Premiership Final victory over Exeter Chiefs.
