George North believes there is more to come from Wales after their history-making autumn Test series.
Wales’ 20-11 victory over South Africa completed a first four-from-four autumn return, while it also extended an unbeaten run to a 19-year, nine-game best and was their fourth win in a row against the Springboks.
Wales also won 10 games in a calendar year – they lost only twice and were undefeated at home – for the first time under head coach Warren Gatland.
Gatland says he hopes people “can concentrate on talking England up and how good Ireland are,” with Wales slipping under the radar, but this month’s performances have screamed Six Nations and World Cup intentions from the roof-tops.
In addition to the Springboks success, they toppled Australia for a first time since 2008, beat Scotland and scored 50 second-half points to crush Tonga. Across the Scotland, Australia and South Africa games, Wales conceded just two tries.
Wales kick off their Six Nations campaign against France in Paris on February 1, while both England and Ireland have to visit Cardiff, and Gatland’s group will go into European rugby’s blue riband event having not lost since midway through last season’s tournament.
