Bursting onto the scene at Saints in 2018 while in the Club’s Senior Academy, George Furbank was rewarded with his first senior contract ahead of the 2019/20 season.​ 

After starting off at hometown club Huntingdon RFC, the fullback honed his skills at Bedford School – alongside several other fellow Saints – and joined the Senior Academy in 2016. 

Furbank lifted the Premiership Rugby Under-18s League trophy before making his senior Club debut in November 2017, marking the occasion against Exeter Chiefs in the Anglo-Welsh Cup with a try. 

And the fullback/fly-half would make 18 appearances in his breakthrough season during 2018/19 as he helped Saints reach the knock-out stages of every competition – starting in the European Challenge Cup quarter-final against Clermont Auvergne, and the Premiership Rugby Cup final victory in 2019 that saw Northampton claim a first piece of silverware in five seasons. 

Furbank cemented his place in Saints’ starting line-up in 2019/20, with his stellar performances not only helping Northampton to their first win on French soil since 2011, but also putting the fullback on the international stage – where a call-up to the England squad and his Test debut against France in the 2020 Six Nations would follow. 

After reaching 50 appearances for Saints in 2020/21, Furbank earned an England recall to feature against Canada in the summer, before starting at fly-half against Tonga in the 2021 Autumn Nations Series.
