There’s Been Another Twist In George North’s Race To Be Fit For The England Game

Rob Howley is keeping England guessing.

WalesOnline reported this morning, that George North is set to be a late withdrawal from the Welsh squad ahead of their crucial Six Nations clash with England at the Principality tomorrow evening.

Interim head coach Rob Howley delayed naming his Wales team yesterday, due to fitness concerns with both Dan Biggar and George North. Both were eventually named in the starting line-up but it was reported this morning that North has been unable to recover from the leg injury he picked up in last weekend’s win over Italy.

The Northampton winger was set to be replaced by Alex Cuthbert on the wing, but there was a twist today during the captain’s run, with North present and active. Wales Online reported Simon Thomas then tweeted to say that Howley and his team could wait until an hour before kick-off to make a final call on both North and Biggar.

Are Wales playing mind-games, or are they genuinely trying to give the duo every chance of being fit?
