George North will make the switch from Scarlets to Northampton Saints following this summer’s British & Irish LIons tour to Australia after the Aviva Premiership side won the race for his coveted signature. Ever since marking his debut for the Scarlets with two tries against Benetton Treviso at the beginning of the 2010/11 season the King’s Lynn-born winger has enjoyed an incredible scoring record.
At 18 years and 214 days, he became the youngest player ever to score a try on his debut for Wales. The previous record holder was Tom Pearson, who was aged 18 years, 238 days when he scored against England in 1891.
He also became the youngest player to have scored two tries on his debut, with the opposition being a major rugby nation and the youngest player ever to have scored two tries against a major rugby nation, whether on his debut or not.
He made a huge impression at the 2011 Rugby World Cup, scoring two tries against Namibia and one against Fjii, making him the youngest try scorer at a Rugby World Cup, aged 19 years and 166 days. He ended up topping the tournament statistics for most metres gained (509m) and defenders beaten (24).
In February 2012 he broke yet another international record when his try in the opening Six Nations win against Ireland made him the youngest player in rugby history to score 10 international tries.
