First bursting onto the scene at Saints in 2018, George Furbank was rewarded with his first senior contract the following summer and joined Saints' senior set-up 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 2015.

Furbank lifted the Premiership Rugby U18s League trophy before becoming Saint #1986 in November 2017, adding a debut try to his record as he faced Exeter Chiefs in the Anglo-Welsh Cup.

And the fullback would make 18 appearances in his breakthrough season the following term, claiming the Club's Player of the Month award for February before helping 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, his Test debut and the 2020 Six Nations title would follow.
