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.”
