George North’s performance against Australia last weekend was exemplary, but it has also been one of the biggest talking points this week. After shifting to the centres in the second half and playing well, would that be his best position long term? He is undoubtedly devastating in the open spaces on the wing, but moving inside would give him more chances to get his hands on the ball, and as he proved on Saturday, he has the power and quick feet to find space when there doesn’t appear to be any.
This is a fairly hypothetical exercise, at club level anyway, as the Saints have a plethora of quality centres, but purely on that hypothetical level, do you think George North’s best position in the future would be centre?
