    Waratahs sign former Sharks lock

    2016-12-09 11:09

    Sydney - The Waratahs have announced the signing of lock David McDuling for the 2017 Super Rugby season.

    Born in Sydney, McDuling is a product of St Ignatius College, Riverview and has had a wealth of rugby experience across the world in Australia, South Africa and New Zealand.

    He has recently returned from New Zealand after contributing to Canterbury’s 2016 Mitre 10 Cup Championship win, scoring two tries in his nine appearances for the side.

    Waratahs head coach, Daryl Gibson, said it was great to have McDuling back in his home town playing rugby for the Waratahs.  

    “Dave caught my eye with his performances for Canterbury in the Mitre 10 Cup recently,” Gibson told the Waratahs’ official website.

    “To be able to bring a local NSW player with his experience at short notice is a real bonus. As someone with a very determined attitude and leadership qualities, he is a great asset for the squad."

    McDuling was a member of the Australian Schoolboys team in 2007 and the Australian Under 20s in 2009 before he moved to Queensland where he began his professional rugby career.

    The 27-year-old made his Super Rugby debut for the Reds in 2014, before leaving to join the Sharks in Durban, where he played in both the Currie Cup and Super Rugby during the 2015 and 2016 seasons.

    He has since been playing in New Zealand with 2016 Mitre 10 Cup Champions, Canterbury.
