Tom Kingston will start for the HSBC Waratahs against the Bulls in Pretoria this weekend, as he wears the No. 11 jersey in place of the injured Drew Mitchell.
The Sydney University winger is the only change to the matchday 22 to take on the Bulls in Pretoria in the early hours of Sunday morning.
The game kicks off at 1.05am Sydney-time and will see the side attempt to build on its impressive performance in beating the defending champions the Chiefs by 25-20 at Allianz Stadium last Friday.
The game will see hooker Tatafu Polota-Nau earn his 100th cap for NSW, making him the seventh most capped player in the state’s history.  The HSBC Waratahs last beat the Bulls 23-13 in the 2005 Super 12 semi-final in Sydney. Their last win in Pretoria was a convincing 51-19 victory in 2002.
The match will be shown live on Fox Sports.  Alternatively you can follow every score live on twitter by following @NSWWaratahs or by searching #BULvWAR.
