Cape Town - The Sharks on Friday announced the signing of Reds lock David McDuling who will join the Durban-franchise until the end of 2016.

Known for his never-give-up attitude and athleticism around the park, McDuling made his Super Rugby debut in 2014 against the Crusaders and has since amassed a total of 12 Super Rugby caps for the Reds. 

He also won the inaugural season of the National Rugby Championship with Brisbane City and had the most carries and run metres of any second rower in the competition.

Sharks Director of Rugby, Gary Gold, welcomed the signing:  "He has huge potential and is an exciting prospect.  At the Reds, he played behind the Wallaby captain James Horwill and gained some valuable experience.

"He will certainly bolster our depth at lock and we look forward to welcoming him to the Sharks family."

McDuling added: "I'm excited to be joining the Sharks at this stage of my career.  After speaking with Gary, I cannot wait to contribute to a successful Sharks team starting with the upcoming Currie Cup. The opportunity to live in a great city such as Durban and play for the Sharks was one I did not hesitate to take."

McDuling will arrive in Durban next week to join the Sharks for their pre-season training ahead of the start of the Currie Cup tournament.
