George North returns for Wales
27 Aug 2015 14:02
George North will make his first appearance for five months when Wales continue their World Cup preparations by tackling Ireland in Dublin on Saturday.
-
The Northampton wing suffered three concussions last season, while he has not played since being knocked unconscious during Saints' Aviva Premiership victory over Wasps on March 27.
-
But he has passed all the required tests and successfully came through a Wales squad training match in north Wales earlier this month, with North's return to action also seeing him win a 50th cap as he lines up in a powerful team that also includes York-born Exeter prop Tomas Francis, who makes his Test debut.

"It's always a great game in Dublin, and there is an important factor to this match, with the Rugby World Cup squad announced just a few days later" - Warren Gatland
