Gatland predicts a bright future for North

WALES coach Warren Gatland has tipped teenager George North to be “an absolute star” of the future after handing him his RBS 6 Nations debut.

The 18-year-old Scarlets wing will replace an injured Shane Williams against France in Paris tomorrow night.

Gatland said: “We think George is a real quality player of the future, someone who is going to be special.”
