Andrew Gee (born 23 April 1970) is an Australian retired professional rugby league footballer of the 1990s and 2000s. A Queensland State of Origin representative prop forward, at the time of his retirement he held the Brisbane Broncos club record of most appearances by any forward.

While attending Beaudesert High School, Gee played for the Australian Schoolboys team in 1986.[1]

He transferred to Brisbane from Beaudesert, Queensland in 1989 and started his representative career for Queensland the following year.

Gee was rewarded after his strong display in the 1991 State of Origin series with selection on the Australian tour of Papua New Guinea. Unfortunately, he made just one appearance before being injured and also met a similar fate the following season.

The Brisbane prop played just seven matches and was left out of the starting line up that won the grand final over the St George Dragons but was a member of the Broncos side that won the World Club Challenge against Wigan.

Gee was a reserve when the club won the second of its two consecutive premierships in 1993 but overcame a lengthy suspension at the beginning of the 1994 season to take his place in the side that lost the World Club Challenge to Wigan, 20-14, at ANZ Stadium in June.

Andrew toiled with the Broncos through the club's domination of the 1997 Super League season and took his place in the champion Brisbane team that won the 1998 grand final. In 1998 he won the club's player of the year award.

He left the club at the end of 1999 to join Warrington but later returned to the Broncos, along with former captain Allan Langer, for the 2002 season.

Sometimes criticized for lack of discipline resulting in needless penalties which potentially cost his team victories [2], Gee finished his playing career in 2003. That year he also made the State of Origin team, some 13 years after his first representative match. He was the first player to play 250+ games for the broncos.

Early in the 2007 season at the Broncos' 20-year anniversary celebration, the club announced a list of the 20 best players to play for them to date which included Gee.[3]

Andrew Gee continues to serve at the Broncos assisting the coaching staff.
