The Blue Bulls have signed EP Kings utility forward Jacques Potgieter, who will join the team in 2012 on a two year contract.
The 26-year-old was one of the stand-out players for the Kings in their recent Nations Cup appearance in Bucharest, Romania.
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 at 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," he said.
"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."
The announcement follows Tuesday's news that Lions scrumhalf Jano Vermaak is also on his way to join the Bulls, as the Pretoria side begin planning ahead for the 2012 season.
