Wales and British & Irish Lions star George North returns from his spell on the sidelines to start for Northampton’s trip to Gloucester on Sunday.

North last ran out for Northampton in their East Midlands derby against Leicester on Dec. 3 when he picked up a bang to the head in the early stages of the match but played on.

An investigation by the Concussion Management Review Group since determined North should not have continued to play but the Saints did not face any sanction over the incident. World Rugby has asked for further clarification from the Rugby Football Union over the North case.

But he is now fit to return and is named on the wing for Sunday’s match at Kingsholm having missed their last three games after seeking a specialist’s opinion on head injuries.
