Potgieter boost for Bulls

2011-08-30 22:11

Cape Town - The Blue Bulls will be able to call on two forwards - Jacques Potgieter and Dewald Potgieter for the remainder of the Currie Cup season.

According to the Beeld newspaper, Dewald Potgieter is fit again after undergoing an operation to his broken nose. He will be considered for the Bulls' clash with the Sharks at Loftus Versfeld on Saturday.

Jacques Potgieter - who signed a deal with the Bulls from the EP Kings earlier this month - has been released early from his contract and will join the Pretoria-based outfit with immediate effect. Initially, he was only due to join the Bulls on November 1.

He will provide a much needed boost up front to a team that has struggled thus far in the Currie Cup with most of its stalwarts away on Springbok duty. The 26-year old is equally adept at playing lock as he is at loose forward.

The now former EP Kings stalwart will be able to start training with his new team-mates on Thursday, but won't be considered for the clash against the Sharks as coach Pine Pienaar is expected to name his team on Wednesday.

Pienaar is expected to pick Juandré Kruger at lock and Bjorn Basson at wing. Both missed last week's game against the Leopards with ailments.

    Sterkte Jacques...jy het sopas jou toekoms weggegooi...volgende jaar speel jy B-liga saam met die Flou Koeie...

      Chris in Oz - 2011-08-30 23:22

      I think he is scared to play Superugby. He heard the Kings need to be included in Superugby so he left them and went to the Bulls.

      @ Chris in Oz - Are you sure you're in OZ Mate?...Think you're in Cuckoo land Mate!!!!?

      BLOODY AGENT - 2011-08-31 07:53

      Toekoms weggegooi deur vir n Kampioen span te speel?,moenie my laat lag nie

      Northern Stormer - 2011-08-31 07:58

      Gewese kampioen span one might say !!!!

      BLOODY AGENT - 2011-08-31 08:10

      Dis Nog steeds beter as n geen Kampioen span vir 10 jaar.

      Northern Stormer - 2011-08-31 08:18

      @Bloodagent - Ons reserwes hou julle besig terwyl ons sterkste manne die RWC's inpalm - Een van die dae sal ons weer op die Super en CC reekse konsentreer - dis nou wanneer al die Bulle se outoppies afgetree het. Huidiglik is dit belangriker dat hulle in NZ die rigtinglose Bulls bystaan en verseker dat ons die RWC wen !!!!!

      BLOODY AGENT - 2011-08-31 08:29

      Dit is seker wat jy jouself al die laaste 10 jaar wysmaak

      Johan van Zyl - 2011-08-31 08:51

      @Northern Warrelwindjie - Daar is nie 'n woord in Afrikaans soos "huidiglik" nie. Probeer eerder die woord "tans".

      Northern Stormer - 2011-08-31 08:52

      @BloodyAgent - Feite ou balsak feite - net sulke feite soos dat die WP/Stormers 10 jaar geen cups het nie - blote feite en geen aannames en arrogante predictions nie - Ek dink ek is oud genoeg om van beter te weet as om my aan jou gebrekkige kennis te steur wat net inligting van 1939 af kan opsoek op google en aanhoudend een of maybe twee comments opsit - jy mossie breintjie steek vas by 10 jaar no cups en daar bly dit - gaan lees die huisgenoot of iets anders of soek onderaan jou dagboek se blaaie ander chirps as jy sukkel om iets sinvols uit te dink - maar hel man wys darem jy het regtig n IK of deel jy,Lloyd,Dozer,Marcell en julle ander narre een brein ????

      Friksepappa - 2011-08-31 09:12

      @Northern Stoffer jy kan seker nie lekker tel nie... Meer Bulls/Sharks in bokspan as Stoffers... Julle konsentrasie is al vir 10 jaar pokkol werd... Hou op twak praat en suig jou papsak verder

      Northern Stormer - 2011-08-31 09:22

      Okay dis confirmed jy deel ook n brein met Bloody Agent en die res van die jokers - ploeter voort my maat want weereens sukkel jy saam hulle om te konsentreer. As dit julle pas gaan julle diep in die verlede in maar dan as dit julle pas dan kyk julle net na die hede - is jy nou op die huidige Bok span of die een van 2007 of alles vanaf 2007 tot op hede of wat ?? - help man want jy is onduidelik !!!!

  • Ken J May - 2011-08-30 23:06

    Jacques, passop ons gaan jou neus ook breek!

  • Chris in Oz - 2011-08-30 23:19

    All the Sharks should be happy about the Dewald Potgieter news. Now he is able to further weaken the Flou Nulle.

      Charlie - 2011-08-31 03:13

      Gaan suip n long black en gaan speel met jou flat white.

      Chris in Oz - 2011-08-31 03:20

      Is that all you can say? You have no argument of your own to prove me wrong? HA! So you know Dewald Potgieter is useless.

      Bulldozer - 2011-08-31 07:12

      Chris, how many cups have your favourite flank won?

      vallemj@24.com - 2011-08-31 07:15

      We won a Cup this year , what has your Favourite flanks won this year? Or where have your favourite Flanks ended on the log this year?

      Chris in Oz - 2011-08-31 07:22

      Typical Blue Bull comment, when you have no real counter-argument. Where is your favourite Flou Nulle and their flankers on the log NOW, TODAY, THIS WEEK? Let me have a look....Oh yes. At the bottom!!!

      Bulldozer - 2011-08-31 07:39

      Yes vallem, it's every youngster's dream to win the Choice cup, Neotel and Conference cup. That's what they all play for. They don't care about the Currie cup or Super rugby trophy. Chris, no proper cups for 10 years. Fact.

      Chris in Oz - 2011-08-31 07:44

      Oupa Dozer. Bottom of the log. FACT.

      vallemj@24.com - 2011-08-31 07:50

      Bulldozer , what have they done this year if I may ask. What do you think is going to happen next year? Look to the Future and the present not the past, easy for me to say Province still has more Currie Cups than Bulls. 32 to 23 and please dont come back and say but the Bulls only started later than Province because then I'm just gonna say it's not Province's problem that Pretoria could not put a decent side foward to challenge in the early stages.

      Northern Stormer - 2011-08-31 07:51

      @Vallemj@24.com - I might be mistaken but I know of at least on flanker south who can stand up and say - "Well guys I actually won a RWC before and I don't care about your 3 Super cups and various CC etc etc etc. Once you guys competed in a RWC and actually came home victoriuos then we talk again - oh yes and by the way this is my third RWC I am competing in " - The only problem with the other flankers he was talking to is that they actually first of all need to be in the RWC squad before they could do that ????????

      Bulldozer - 2011-08-31 07:55

      Vallem, good luck with the future because your past 10 years have been a little bleak.

      BLOODY AGENT - 2011-08-31 07:56

      Valem@24 And what did the Stormers/Wp done this year or the last ten years that are worth mentioning apart from winning second string cups,choking at crucial times and buying has beens from other provinces?

      vallemj@24.com - 2011-08-31 08:31

      We compete for Super 15 titles , we are competing for the Currie Cup, we dont fail to make playoff's. You sitting 6th in the Currie Cup, you losing all you talented players , Province will win Cups in the future , but the all mighty Bulls? What do you reckon they gonna be doing in the next 10 years. Watch what you say now because in ten years it's gonna be the Province supporters shouting "what have you done in the last 10 years" LOL......

  • hendrik.pienaar - 2011-08-31 05:06

    Gotta go with Chris in Oz on this one. Dewald Potgieter is heavily overrated, along with Dean Greyling, Werner Kruger, Deon Stegmann, Bjorn Basson & Zane Kirchner. None of them should ever have been Springboks. Rather give Arno Botha a genuine shot at retaining his place in the team. Of course performance doesn't matter in Pretoria. They have a 'system' in place.

      Chris in Oz - 2011-08-31 05:18

      I absolutely agree. And I can add Wynand Olivier to that list as well.

      hendrik.pienaar - 2011-08-31 06:12

      No no. Wynand Olivier does his job. He's an important cog in that Bulls team, even if he hasn't really carried that form through to test level.

      Bulldozer - 2011-08-31 07:10

      Chris, het jy nie n skaap om te steek nie?

      Chris in Oz - 2011-08-31 07:17

      Nee ek bly nie in New Zealand nie, Oupa Dozer.

      Bulldozer - 2011-08-31 07:41

      So, julle steek nie skape in Australia nie?

      Chris in Oz - 2011-08-31 07:46

      Nee. Is jy nou teleurgesteld? Gaan jy nou nie meer kom kuier nie?

      Bulldozer - 2011-08-31 07:56

      Jou ma is hier in S.A. As ek wil skaap steek dan weet ek waar om te gaan.

      BLOODY AGENT - 2011-08-31 08:00

      Chris haal die skaap se agterpote uit jou gumboots uit,dis nie n fair fight nie,en terwyl jy besig is trek sommer jou broek ook op ,

      Chris in Oz - 2011-08-31 08:01

      So jy IS 'n skaapsteker!!!!!

      BLOODY AGENT - 2011-08-31 08:13

      Chris ek is nie seker nie,is jou ma se naam skaap?

      Bulldozer - 2011-08-31 08:27

      He has achieved what every rugby player dream of. To play for the Bulls.

      Chris in Oz - 2011-08-31 07:19

      It's sad when your beloved Flou Nulle are now buying the discards from EP.

      BLOODY AGENT - 2011-08-31 08:02

      Chris just as sad as the WP buying discarded players from the Bulls

      Chris in Oz - 2011-08-31 08:11

      At least WP bought players from a team that used to be a champion team. The Bulls are so far from their past glory they need to buy players from EP. The MIGHTY EP.

  • vallemj@24.com - 2011-08-31 07:26

    Dewalt Potgieter and Stegmann the main reason Bulls ended 7th in the Super 15.

      Chris in Oz - 2011-08-31 07:30

      Together with rocket scientist Danie Rossouw.

      hendrik.pienaar - 2011-08-31 07:49

      Nothing wrong with Danie Rossouw. The Bulls should have used him more on the blindside instead of Potgieter actually. Bulls have a lot of good players, mixed in with the heavily overrated. Only prop in Pretoria worth making a fuss about is Morné Mellett, they desperately need an openside flanker to replace Stegmann, and if Bjorn Basson doesn't start making tackles he needs to pack his bags (it's an attitude thing. no excuse for missing 2nd most tackles out of anyone in Super rugby)

      Chris in Oz - 2011-08-31 07:55

      @hendrik. Most of the times you talk sense. But there is plenty wrong with Danie Rossouw. Who dives into rucks blind and gives away penalties (no I'm not talking about Bakkies)? Who just knows one way when he has the ball, and that is straight ahead into the tackler(s) in front of him and then either gives away a turnover or a penalty for holding on? That guy is Danie Rossouw.

      hendrik.pienaar - 2011-08-31 08:04

      @Chris in Oz. I'm not saying stick him on the blindside for the Boks. But it's harsh to slam him when you consider he actually had a pretty damn good S15 when he got onto the field. To me he's a lock... but he's a good enough player to have been playing blindside in that team. Now they've got Arno Botha who is a future Springbok no doubt in my mind.

  • Bons - 2011-08-31 07:31

    Speaking of Potgieters, where has Jaque Louise Potgieter been? I'd like to see him back in the Sharks team rather than Meyer Bosman..

      As ons Saterdag verloor dan is dit teen die huidige Currie beker kampioen. Dis geen skande nie. Aan die ander kant om teen n span te verloor wat n dekade laas iets gewen het is erger as bloedskande.

Dis nie die hoeveelheid wat tel nie man - dis die sleutel posisies wat hulle vul wat tel en wat dinge aanmekaar hou - of hoe ??? Toe het ek gou gaan tel en hel man hoe sukkel julle so - (Aplon/De Jongh/De Villiers/ Habana/Jaqcui Fourie & Schalk - dit gee my 6 en as ons Flo bytel is dit 7 ???) - Lewer asb kommentaar as jy reg getel het !!!! Nou 7 uit 30 gee my so n 23 % waar van daar 5 in die beginspan behoort te wees uit n moointlike 15 en dit gee my 33,3% ??? Agnee man word wakker !!!

      ROOIHART - 2011-08-31 09:49

      Ok so dis 6 uit 30. Flo het al lankal oorsee geteken so ek weet nie hoe jy hom wil claim nie... Niemand weet hoe die beginspan gaan lyk in 'n crunch game nie so los maar die 33.3 teorie. Dink jy bv regtig dat gio bo lambie of francois steyn gaan speel...6/30 is 20 persent. Enige ou wat iets weet van rugby weet dat jy al 30 nodig het om iewers te kom in rwc. MY PUNT IS - sharks en bulle het meer spelers as julle in nz maar ek hoor hulle nie kla nie en ek hoor ook nie dat hulle claim dit is hulle provinsie wat die rwc moet huistoe bring nie

      ROOIHART - 2011-08-31 10:06

      @ northern stormer - sleutelposisies! Brei bietjie uit? Ek verstaan losskakel is 'n sleutelposisie....maar hoe is schalk in die 7 trui (as hy span kry) meer van 'n sleutelposisie as die ander losvoorspelers. Of habana op vleuel 'n sleutelposisie??

      Northern Stormer - 2011-08-31 13:45

      @Rooihart - No 7 is n sleutel posisie want as Schalk nie daar cover nie dan hardloop Victor en Bakkies weer in die agterlyn rond - No 11 baie belangrik om seker te maak hy keer die onnosel Bulls voor-spelers dat hulle nie oor die kantlyn draf wanneer hulle probeer vleuel speel nie - No 15 (Aplon) is uiters belangrik om te keer dat hulle heeltyd onder hulle pale wil gaan staan - hy keer hulle en maak seker hulle verstaan hulle speel nou vir die Bokke en nie die Bulle nie en om gereeld onder die pale te staan is nie deel van die Bokke se spelpatroon nie - No 12 maak seker die stadige no 9 & 10 weet op n gereelde grondslag waarheen die bal moet gaan - WATTER SOEK JY NOG OF KRY JY NOGNIE DIE DRIFT OF THE STORY NIE ????

Ek is nog van die ou skool ou bul en ons soort het nie leiers nodig nie want ons weet waarheen ons oppad is en het rigting - nie soos op Floptus waar julle hande hou sodat julle nie verloor nie. Julle is duidelik onopleibaar en duidelik dink jy die kaartjies wat jy koop vir die Oos pawiljoen is seisoen kaartjies - wake up julle mis baie !!!
