Dewald Potgieter, a former Bulls and Springbok flanker, reveals how long it’s actually taken to rain again on his farm.

South Africa’s crippling drought affects everyone – including one of the country’s prominent sport stars.

Dewald Potgieter, a former Springbok flanker who nowadays plays for Worcester in England, on Monday evening revealed his farm in Willowmore in the Eastern Cape received rain for the first time in half a year!

The 29-year-old’s farm is called “Dassiesfontein”, where he breeds Angora goats as well as Dorper sheep.

In fact, he’s so passionate about his Dorpers that he’s even registered a stud, “Dewald Potgieter Dorpers”.
