The experienced Saracens strength and conditioning coach will take up his new role with the Springboks on August 1. Edwards will travel to Cape Town as soon as possible considering the resumption of international travel to South Africa.
He replaces former Springboks coaching staff member Aled Walters, who recently returned to the UK after a successful two-year stint with the South African national team. Rassie Erasmus, Rugby Director, said Edwards will be a good fit for the Springboks in the role of specialists.
“Andy will bring with him a wealth of international knowledge from his working time with a range of world-class coaches and players in Saracens, achieving success in England and in Europe,” said Erasmus.
“He is highly recommended for what is an important role where you need someone with a proven track record and international experience. During his time with the Saracens, he also worked with many South Africans playing for the club, which will help him establish himself on paper.”
Edwards looks forward to the opportunity to work with the 2019 Rugby World Cup-winning Springbok team.
“From my conversations with Rassie and Jacques Nienaber, I know they put a great deal of emphasis on creating a family environment for the Springboks, and that is something that means a lot to me personally,” said Edwards.
My family and I are moving to Cape Town and we are looking forward to meeting everyone involved with the Springboks and experiencing the amazing and diverse South African culture.
From a personal point of view, I am very excited to work with a new group of coaches and players. There is a great challenge ahead in the coming years and I look forward to the journey with the team. I leave the Saracens with wonderful memories on and off the field together with lifelong friends. I and my partner Lorena will always appreciate our time here.
