Northampton have revealed that Wales’ George North is set to be out for up four weeks, meaning he could miss the start of the Six Nations.
North sustained an injury to his knee during the Saints’ loss to Harlequins on Saturday at Twickenham Stadium and requires rehabilitation.
Saints Technical Coaching Consultant Alan Gaffney commented: “While it’s disappointing that George will be missing ahead of Saturday’s game, this injury means an opportunity for another player in the squad to step up to the plate. I’m sure George will be diligent in his rehab and we all wish him a swift recovery.”
Wales kick-off of their Six Nations campaign at home to Scotland on February 3.
