Potgieter joined the Vodacom Bulls shortly after the start of the Vodacom Super Rugby season, having completed the first year of his contract with Yamaha Jubilo. Potgieter captained the side in the latter stages of the 2013 campaign and left for Japan after the Vodacom Bulls were beaten by the Brumbies in the semifinals of the competition.

A great leader and massively versatile in the loose forward position, Potgieter should see most of his action at no8, as his call-back from Japan followed after the season ending injury to Pierre Spies.
