Wales winger George North says he is “feeling okay” after being knocked out in Northampton’s Aviva Premiership clash with Wasps on Friday.

North scored two tries in the Saints’ 52-30 win but after the second, he was caught on the head by the knee of Wasps forward Nathan Hughes, who was sent off for dangerous play but protested his innocence.

North left the field unconscious and in a neck brace b ut the club tweeted just before half-time that he was “awake” a nd the player wrote on his own Twitter account on Saturday: “Thanks for all the messages. Feeling ok, up and about.”

The injury was a worrying sight after North took two blows to the head in his country’s RBS 6 Nations clash with England.

He controversially played on in that game before sitting out Wales’ next match against Scotland.

Northampton director of rugby Jim Mallinder said after Friday’s game: “He is okay now; he is up and walking about in the dressing room. It is a knock to his head, which is not good.

“We will look after him and make sure he comes back when he is right.”
