Grand Slam Would Cap 'Mental Year', Says Wales' George North

Completing the Grand Slam would check a staggering turnaround for Wales following a "psychological year" yet they should take their game up another level to get triumph over France in the Six Nations on Saturday, said focus George North. 

Grains dominated one game to complete fifth in a year ago's Six Nations and were beaten by England, Ireland, Scotland and France in the pre-winter to finish off a forgettable year. 

In any case, they have been changed in 2021, winning each of the four of their matches in the current year's Six Nations, remembering a 48-7 success over Italy for Rome on Saturday.

North, who is hoping to seal his third Grand Slam after accomplishments in 2012 and 2019, said there was such a great amount on the line against the French. 

"It would be a respectable one to add on to the tale of 2021 after a year ago. It's been a psychological year for everybody required from the fall arrangement to what exactly we're playing for on Saturday," North told journalists. 

"We realize we must be prepared and how strong France are. To go to that next level we should be at we must truly up our game."

North, who turned into the most youthful player to arrive at 100 test covers for Wales during the mission, said the group had flown under the radar due to their woeful 2020. 

"After the harvest time arrangement there wasn't a lot of promotion about us, which is in every case great since we like to be longshots," North said. "The difficult work the young men put in ridiculous and the early piece of the Six Nations is truly materializing now. 

"We're a long way from the completed article as it is presently yet we've actually had the chance to remove a few positives from this presentation against Italy and completely center around one week from now."
