North eager to shine for Wales

Date published: January 22 2015

Wales wing George North is hoping to put in a solid Six Nations campaign as he looks to reclaim his jersey after missing their November win.

North, who was injured for the victory over South Africa, found his position taken by Liam Williams who put in a great performance that day.

And it appears North might not walk back into the team against England, with head coach Warren Gatland not one to change a winning formula.

“I think he’s [Gatland] set things out early, which is good for me I know where I stand,” the Northampton Saints finisher told BBC Sport.

“I think everyone knows the kind of character Gatland is, he likes to call on individuals when he knows there’s more to come, myself included.”

He added: “I know that I’ve not been firing on all cylinders in a Welsh jersey which is something I’m keen to rectify this campaign.

“The sort of atmosphere and ethos we feel in Wales is that you’re only as good as the last game and no man is bigger than the jersey and if you don’t play well you’ll lose it, so hopefully I’ll pull my finger out.”
