WATCH | George North sent off after just 14 minutes for ‘dangerous’ incident

Ospreys wing George North was shown a red card after 14 minutes for taking out Ashton Hewitt in the air.

Referee Adam Jones explained his reasoning to the Wales wing and, while there might not have been any malice, it was a reckless challenge and Jones had no other option other than to send him off.

LIST | 5 pairs of stars you didn’t know played together as kids

1. Steff Evans & Josh Adams

When the pair lined up as fresh-faced 11-year-olds in the same schoolboys team at the Millennium Stadium, only in their wildest of dreams could they have imagined they would be back there playing for their country in a Six Nations match in front of 74,500 fans.

Yet that childhood fantasy became reality in 2018 when the former classmates reunited in Warren Gatland’s new-look side that thumped Scotland 34-7 in Cardiff. Evans currently turns out for Scarlets while Adams joined Cardiff Blues from Worcester in 2019.
