George North, a Welsh Rugby Player, Picked Up & Carried an Australian Tackler, Quickly Became a Meme [Video]

By Stephen Douglas

George North is about 6’4″, 240-pounds. North is touring Australia with the British and Irish Lions. Earlier this week, North showed his breakaway speed returning a kick a very long way for a try. (Video below) Today, North showed is power, picking up Australia’s Israel Folau and carrying him a few meters before pile-driving himself into the ground. The image of North carrying the 6’5″, 216-pound Folau immediately became a full-blown meme across the pond. George North is a monster. (Update: He is also Welsh. Sorry about that.)

Here’s that long kick return try from North.
