What has not already been said about George North? Still just in the early stages of his professional career he is already rated as one of the best wingers in the world, and enhanced his reputation no end on the 2013 British and Irish Lions tour to Australia, where he scored in the victorious first and third tests.
It took just six minutes for North to register his first international try, against South Africa in November 2010, and when he crossed the whitewash later in the game he became the youngest player to score twice against a major rugby nation on his debut.
The Kings Lynn-born winger is also the youngest ever try scorer at a Rugby World Cup, the youngest player to have scored 10 international tries, and the first player to have won 20 caps for Wales while still in his teens.
