Northampton Saints and Wales star George North says he is “over” his concussion problems that ruled him out of long periods of last season.
“From my point of view that’s behind me now, I’m over it,” said North.
“Initially, it was a bit worrying, everyone saying that’s my career finished. My first game was Ireland away for Wales – as soon as the final whistle went I was happy to be back.”
Speaking to BBC Radio Northampton, he added: “I’m feeling pretty good now. It’s just nice to be back playing and not to be worrying about my head too much.”
The Wales international is yet to touch down for Saints this season but North insisted that he is confident he will get back to his best.
“It’s a bit frustrating [not scoring] but something I’m not really worried about.
“Being how tough it was with Wales and going back to a different way of playing and re-learn everything, it’s been tough to find my feet.
“The form of the club hasn’t been particularly good, but they’re performing well at the moment and hopefully we’ll both start playing well together. ”
