George North reckons a British Lions series win has capped a sensational season.
It has been an incredible season - and what a way to finish
The 21-year-old started all three Tests for the Lions in Australia including tries in both victories over the Wallabies. That followed his Six Nations success with Wales at the end of an historic season for the wing.
North said: "To finish a long season and long tour with a great win was exactly what we were after. It has been a long season and the first two [Lions] Tests didn't really reflect the way we wanted to play but the boys came out and really played in the final Test.
"It has been an incredible season - and what a way to finish."
North lit up the first Test in Brisbane with a stunning solo score before finishing a scintillating break by Man of the Series, Wales full-back Leigh Halfpenny, to help secure a remarkable 41-16 win in the Sydney decider.
North said: "It was great to score a try in such a big game but it was all Halfpenny and he just gave me the finish. It was another outstanding performance from him, but he has been doing that all season."
North, capped 31 times by Wales, revealed how the Lions stars had stood by head coach Warren Gatland who came under intense scrutiny with his selection of 10 Welshmen for the third Test, including the decision to drop Ireland star Brian O'Driscoll.
The wing said: "We speak about trusting each other all tour and that's what we did from minute one.
"There was a lot of negativity about the squad Warren picked, with the Welsh dominance, but we showed that we trusted our coaches. All credit to Gats and the coaches for putting that team out."
