Rugby: Ruan Potgieter Hunting for SA Schools No.10 Jersey

Ruan Potgieter, Falcons Craven Week Flyhalf, will be in the hunt for the SA Schools no 10 jersey when participating in... this year’s Craven Week in Polokwane.


Potgieter, now in Grade 12 at Dr.EG Jansen in Boksburg, will be attending his second craven week this year, as he was also the flyhalf in last year’s competition at only 16 years old, and ending at 6th overall on most points scored in the tournament.
He also played in every provincial youth tournament since grade 6, namely Under 13 Craven Week, Grant Khomo etc. Ruan attended numerous Investec Courses to help him better all his skills, and was selected in two overseas tours to France in a combined SA team, as well as a UK Barbarian Tour selected by Boots and All.
Ruan is an explosive player with ball in hand, and is very solid when it comes to defence. He is also very reliable when needed to kick the ball, may it be out of hand or punting it through the uprights. All this makes him a proper flyhalf which gives him the edge in any team he plays. At this year’s Kearsney Festival, he stood out with his decision making skills, and had the crowd on their feet every time he touched the ball.
Be sure to keep an eye on him when the Craven week kicks off on 8 July, as this youngster has a bright future in SA Rugby!
