“I don’t play a silly game” – George North’s savage comeback to ex-footballer

George North delivered a savage put-down aimed at former England footballer Jamie Redknapp on the new series of A League Of Their Own.

The replay of North picking up Israel Folau prompted opposing quiz show team captain Redknapp to ask: “Is that the equivalent of nut-megging someone in football?”

North quipped back: “I don’t play a silly game, but in rugby, yeah, that’s pretty good.”
