In May 2013, it was revealed that he would leave the Bulls at the end of the 2013 Super Rugby season. He joined Japanese Top League side Fukuoka Sanix Blues – a deal later extended until 2017 – and would also play Super Rugby for the Waratahs in 2014 and 2015.


In May 2015, it was announced that Potgieter would return to South Africa to join the Sharks on a two-year deal for the start of the 2016 Super Rugby season. However, he did not make a single appearance for the side.
