George North is tackled

Wales wing George North and ex-Cardiff Blues centre Jamie Roberts have made debuts for their new clubs.

Former Scarlets wing North came on as a 58th minute-replacement in Northampton's 24-6 pre-season win over Edinburgh.

North's fellow 2013 British and Irish Lion Roberts started in Racing Metro's 41-14 Top 14 defeat at Toulon.

The duo each scored tries in the Lions' 2-1 Test series win over Australia before moving to their new clubs.
