We will have to get serious about English in the ranks of C’Chartres Rugby next season. Renaud Gourdon, the new coach of the CCR, had spotted Warren Potgieter for several seasons, a player with an interesting profile for the constitution of his group. “Warren is a No. 10 who can evolve to the position of No. 15, he has qualities at the foot that will do us good. Length, precision. I think it will be a good pick, He should help us , with his experience, to grow our group. All positions will be doubled, or even tripled with the contribution of young people. Competition will be healthy, for the benefit of the collective. Like all players, rookies or not, he will be judged on the heap. ”
While waiting to know if Warren Potgieter (26 years old, 1.79m and 88 kg) will be THE n ° 10 that the club is looking for, the future Chartrain has a nice calling card. He wore the colors of Valke a club which fights in the Currie Cup First Division, the equivalent of the ProD2 / National according to Renaud Gourdon. “He returned from an injury, a whiplash during the 2019 season. Due to his injury and the health crisis linked to Covid, he found himself without a contract. This is a good opportunity for us,” admits the coach from Chartres.
