North to miss England game – report

Date published: February 10 2017

Wales wing George North will not be fit to face England according to reports, despite being named in the team on Thursday.

North has been struggling with a dead leg from last Sunday’s match with Italy and now according to¬†WalesOnline¬†is set to be replaced by Alex Cuthbert.

The Northampton Saints wing was one of Wales three try-scorers in Rome but appears to have now lost his fitness race to start in Cardiff.

Cuthbert will therefore be promoted with the other wing option in the Wales squad being the uncapped Steff Evans.
