Player Biog

It was the most talked about signing of 2013 when George North moved to Northampton and the young Welsh wing has certainly shown why.

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.

George was raised in Anglesey, Wales following a move from Hong Kong when he was two years old and is fluent in the Welsh language. Before being called up to the international squad, George had played just six matches for the Scarlets’ first team and soon proved his worth in the side.

It took just six minutes for George 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.

A first try for the Saints had to wait until the fourth round of the 2013/14 Aviva Premiership against Sale Sharks, but by that stage he had already brilliantly laid on the league’s try of the season for Jamie Elliott at Kingsholm.

His next appearance against the Cherry and whites came in the opening game of the Saints’ Aviva Premiership title defence and George duly scored his first hat-trick for the club in a 53-6 drubbing.
