Wales finished second in the Six Nations, having picked up a draw away to Ireland and they lost narrowly to England in Twickenham. All in all, Warren Gatland’s side are in good shape, and will travel to New Zealand in June optimistic of causing an almighty shock. The main threats of George North, Dan Biggar and Co. performed well throughout the tournament apart from a poor first half in London, and can be proud of the campaign.
North solidified his status as one of the very best wingers in world rugby at present, leading several of the key stats throughout the tournament.
After the tournament, he led the way with most defenders beaten (26), most clean breaks (12) and most metres made (473) across the five games.
He also finished as top tryscorer, scoring four tries in four consecutive games.
He would arguably take his place on a world XV at present, mixing it with the best wingers in the world.
What a beast!
