Andrews has this season played four games for the struggling South African franchise, who are bottom of the URC table with only one win – all of his appearances have come off the bench and have ended in defeat for John Plumtree’s side.

Known for his high work rate, the 28-year-old was sent off for the first time in his career for a dangerous clean-out when Zebre Parma ended an 18-month wait for a win in November.
