Wales flyer George North is in no doubt of the challenge posed by New Zealand’s “exceptional” Julian Savea this weekend.

Both wings are set to be in action when the countries clash at Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium on Saturday.

But while North has established himself as a crowd favourite, it is the world champions’ Savea who boasts a stunning scoring-rate of 29 tries in a mere 32 Tests.

“He is exceptional,” said North.

“He is a brilliant example of how to impose yourself on a game.

“He pops up left, right and centre. You have to watch to work out what to do, but learn from him as well.”

“The All Blacks have shown over the past few weeks that they can win Test matches when they are really feeling the heat.

“They are deservedly number one in the world and we have to step up our game massively for the weekend.”
