Potgieter to stomp with the Vodacom Bulls
03 August 2011

The Blue Bulls Company Pty (Ltd) is pleased to announce that EP Kings utility forward Jacques Potgieter will be joining the Vodacom Bulls in 2012 on a two year contract.

The 26-year old Potgieter, who was one of the stand-out players for the Kings in their recent Nations Cup appearance in Bucharest, Romania, will link up with the Vodacom Bulls on November 1st, 2011.

The powerful ball-carrying Potgieter, who is equally adapt in playing at lock as he is as a loose forward, has been making a huge impression with his robust and energetic displays for the Kings in the First Division.

Born and bred in Port Elizabeth, where he played for EP Schools, Potgieter had a stint with the Natal Wildebeest while attending the Sharks Academy, but returned to the Eastern Cape in 2009.

Potgieter believes the move will take him to the next level as a player.

“The Bulls are the best team in the country and one of the top sides in Super Rugby. I believe my approach to the game and their style of play will be a perfect fit. I am keen to join an outfit with a track record of Super Rugby and Currie Cup success and believe this move will be highly beneficial for me as a player and a person.”

Dit is goeie nuus, die een of 2 games wat hulle gewys het van die Kings kon mens sien hierdie ou het nie 'n bang haar op sy kop nie en is onverskrokke op verdediging.

Ek sien hy is net 2 sentimeter korter en 2 kilogram ligter as Danie, net die man wat ons soek.

As hy tuis is op slot of losvoorspeler, dan het ons die regte man vir die werk van Danie Roussouw. Dit sal goed wees om iemand te he wat weer al die posisies in die skrum behalwe voorste 3 kan speel. Wel gedaan BBRU!
