George North to miss bulk of autumn internationals through injury


Wales will be without star winger George North for the bulk of the autumn internationals after he was ruled out for between six to eight weeks.

North suffered a “sprain to his posterior cruciate ligament” in their defeat to Saracens on Sunday, according to Northampton Saints.

The club say he needs rehabilitation which puts his time on the sidelines between six to eight weeks.

With Wales kicking off their four-Test autumn internationals programme against Australia on Nov. 11, North looks likely to miss their games against Georgia the week later and then their clash with the All Blacks on Nov. 25.

If the rehabilitation goes well, then he could feature against South Africa on Dec. 2 while his club Northampton will hope he’s back fit for their European Champions Cup fixtures in December.
