 North played as a junior for Llangefni, Pwllheli, Rhyl and Gogledd Cymru under-16s. At just 18 years old, he became the youngest player ever to score a try on his debut for Wales.

North made an impressive start to his international career on Saturday 13 November 2010 in a match against the reigning World Champions, by scoring two tries for Wales as they lost to South Africa 29–25 in the Millennium Stadium, Cardiff, Wales. He set a number of Welsh and international records in the match.

In September 2011 North scored two tries against Namibia, making him the youngest ever try scorer at a Rugby World Cup competition aged 19 years and 166 days and beating the record set by Australian Joe Roff.

In February 2012 he broke yet another international record and became the youngest player in rugby history to score 10 international tries.

George North will make the switch from Scarlets to Northampton Saints following this summer’s British & Irish LIons tour to Australia.
