Potgieter extends contract with Bulls

Rugby

Johannesburg - Flyhalf Jacques-Louis Potgieter has extended his contract with the Bulls until 2016, the franchise said on Tuesday.

Potgieter joined the Bulls earlier in the season from France, following stints with Bayonne and Dax, and immediately proved to be a valuable asset to the squad.

“I think I am finally home,” Potgieter said in a statement.

“We have some unfinished business at the Bulls and the Blue Bulls and I would like nothing more than winning a trophy with them again.”

Potgieter has started in 10 of 12 matches since his arrival and scored 142 points at an average of 11.8 points per match.

This included a try, 13 conversions, 34 penalties and three dropped goals.

Potgieter made his Super Rugby debut for the Bulls in 2007, before moving to the Cheetahs in search of more game time. He returned to Pretoria in 2010 and joined the Sharks a year later.

Bulls coach Frans Ludeke said he was pleased to have him around for another two years.

“Jacques-Louis has proved his value in less than a season and reminded everyone of his abilities,” Ludeke said.

His experience came through for us already and we are very pleased about him staying on.”
