Saints escape North head injury sanction

The decision not to sanction Northampton over their handling of George North’s latest head injury’s been strongly criticised.

Brain injury charity Headway says the decision’s a backward step for how sports treat concussion.

An RFU report found North shouldn’t have played on after suffering a fifth blow to the head in two years in a game earlier this month.

But his health was deemed the Saints main focus, so the club avoided punishment.
