North won't play for Northampton
01 Apr 2015 14:02
Wales wing George North will not play for Northampton in Saturday's European Champions Cup quarter-final at Clermont Auvergne after his latest head injury.
-
North has been knocked unconscious three times in recent months, including in last Friday's 52-30 win over Wasps.
-
Saints coach Jim Mallinder said: "We won't play him at the weekend. Clearly he had a nasty knock.
-
"He's making good progress. The day after he was up and about.
-
"He's improving and down there at the moment going to see a neurologist and we'll wait to see what the experts say."
-
Former World Rugby medical adviser Dr Barry O'Driscoll says North - the top try-scorer in the competition with seven this season - should not play again this season.
-
Mallinder added: "There's been lots of opinion. We've got to be careful that we don't blow anything out of proportion.
-
"It's a tough game, [but] player welfare will always come first."
