A right-arm fast-medium bowler, George plays his first class cricket for the Queensland Bulls. George gained a rookie contract in 2005/06 but lost it the very next season. He regained a contract in the 2008/09 season.
He made his Test cricket debut for Australia in the second Test against India at Bangalore.
He is one of the tallest players in Australian domestic cricket with a height of 203 cm. George progressed through the grades of the West Torrens DCC, and unlike many other Test Match players struggled to make an impact in junior grades.
He recently was honoured with the naming of the Ferguson-George Cricket Academy for promising young players in the West Torrens zone named after him and Southern Redbacks team-mate and fellow Australian Cricket Representative Callum Ferguson. In 2014 George moved to Queensland on a rookie contract in the hope of more opportunity.
In the Matador Cup George capitalized on his chances, taking 11 wickets.
Before the 2015/16 season, George was rewarded with a senior contract by the Bulls. George has been compared in style to former fast-bowler Glenn McGrath. His first class debut was for the Redbacks in November of the 2008/09 season.
He took 4 for 56 against Tasmania in Hobart.
George holds the record for best bowling figures at Bellerive Oval with the figures 8 for 84. George was called into the Australian Test squad midway through the early 2010 tour of New Zealand as an emergency replacement after a series of injuries to Australian pacemen, but did not enter the on-field team
He then toured England in July but was not used in the neutral-venue two-Test series against Pakistan. George was in the squad for the two-Test tour of India and made his debut in the Second Test in Bangalore, after Doug Bollinger injured himself in the First Test.
