Wales 40 Argentina 6: George North praises 'great' victory after the Welsh improve to show their clinical side
North was one of four try scorers who gave Wales their first win in the autumn internationals in four years
Saturday 16 November 2013
Wing George North was pleased to see a more clinical Wales performance in their 40-6 win over Argentina at the Millennium Stadium.
North was one of four try-scorers as Wales put their ragged defeat to South Africa behind them to collect their first autumn Test win since 2009.
And the 21-year-old Northampton star told BBC One: "It was great, obviously.
"Last week we had a lot of errors, we tightened up our game to be more accurate and we showed that today.
"We didn't start the best last week but it's a massive competition for us, this autumn series, and it's good to get the win today."
North scored an excellent try in the first half, using his pace and power to burst through after a neat reverse pass by Mike Phillips.
A storming break from his own 22 in the second period almost resulted in a second try, with Leigh Halfpenny eventually kicking a penalty. Phillips, Toby Faletau and Ken Owens got the other tries and Halfpenny kicked 20 points.
North played down his personal contribution, saying: "It was just a good performance all round, myself included. We played to our strengths and a were a lot more accurate."
