Six Nation: Wales George North gets Warning by defence coach Shaun Edwards

Tuesday , 7 March 2017 :  Defence coach Shaun Edwards highlighted the right wing, where North played in the defeat by Scotland, as an area of recent defensive weakness for Wales.

After successive losses to Scotland and England, Wales name their team to face Ireland on Wednesday.

“If he is selected, I expect George to certainly be on his mettle,” said Edwards.

“I also think that George had a very good game against Italy, in very, very difficult circumstances. He got a really bad bang on his leg and toughed it out well.

“Yes he wasn’t at his best against Scotland but I think great players, who’ve done great things for you in the past, sometimes deserve a warning.”

North started the Six Nations campaign in fine fashion, scoring a spectacular solo try in Wales’ opening win in Italy.

Injury ruled the 24-year-old out of the next game against England, which Wales lost thanks to a late try from England’s left wing Elliot Daly, who evaded a tackle from North’s replacement, Alex Cuthbert.

North returned for the defeat by Scotland, in which Wales conceded a try on each flank.
