Wales star George North will set a new world record when he makes his rugby comeback in tomorrow's Test match against Ireland.
At 23 years and 138 days, Northampton wing North will become the youngest player in rugby union Test match history to reach 50 caps for his country.
North made his Wales debut against South Africa in November 2010, scoring two tries, and what has proved to be a stellar career now hits another notable landmark.
He returns to action for his first appearance since late March. He suffered three concussions last season, but is now fully fit.

Shane Williams is returning to Neath - this time as an ambassador, but he hasn’t ruled out pulling on the famous black jersey once again.
The 2008 world player of the year has agreed to lend a helping hand to the club where it all began for him in senior rugby.
Recently retired Williams will provide support for the club's coaching team and take on ambassadorial duties.
Williams turned down an approach from Merthyr RFC a fortnight ago.
If he can get himself fit enough then it would be great to see him play a few games, but it will be a question of working around his other commitments and seeing how best we can make things work for us and for him.
