TEAM ANNOUNCEMENT: Former Sharks player David McDuling has been named in the Waratahs starting XV for Round Three, with Will Skelton to remain sidelined this weekend.

Skelton continues to experience discomfort with a hamstring injury, paving the way for McDuling to get a start against his former teammates at the Sharks when he runs out at Kings Park in Durban on Saturday. 
 
Waratahs Head Coach Daryl Gibson said he's excited to offer McDuling the opportunity to step up into the role. 
  
"We are excited for David who has earned the chance to start after his performance as a finisher in recent weeks. It is a great opportunity for him to go up against his old team," said Gibson.
 
Test scrumhalf Nick Phipps, rejoins the Waratahs team after he was forced to miss Round Two with an ankle injury. 
 
Waratahs: 15 Andrew Kellaway, 14 Reece Robinson, 13 Israel Folau, 12 Irae Simone, 11 Rob Horne, 10 Bryce Hegarty, 9 Nick Phipps, 8 Michael Wells, 7 Michael Hooper (captain), 6 Jack Dempsey, 5 David McDuling, 4 Dean Mumm, 3 Sekope Kepu, 2 Tolu Latu, 1 Tom Robertson.
