Rugby News Wales call for North
Saints wing George North has been named in the Wales squad for their autumn internationals, Warren Gatland’s side lining up a quartet of Tests against South Africa, Argentina, Tonga and Australia.
The first of those clashes comes in the second week of November, the Springboks at the Millennium Stadium on the 9th and the remaining Test matches coming in consecutive weeks up to the November 30th meeting with the Wallabies, also in Cardiff.
North will be hoping to add to his 12 tries in 60 caps and is one of 13 Lions tourists selected by Gatland, along with captain Sam Warburton. He is also the 10th Saint to receive an international call-up for the autumn.
