And with England next up for Warren Gatland's troops a potential clash is in store in the No.13 shirt between two Northampton Saints.
Burrell has been extremely impressive for England in his first three international caps and North, who starred for the Lions in Australia this summer, cannot wait to take on his Saints teammate.
"I have already texted him [Burrell] that I'm coming for him. No, I haven't really," he said.
"We've had some good banter already, and it is good to see him playing well.
"He has got his chance now in the England jersey, which is well deserved.
"I will need to step up and try to prove myself again for the England game, if need be.
"I like playing on the wing, but we will see what the gaffer says.
"Centre is different. As a wing, I am just reading what the 13 is doing, but when you are 13 then you are making things happen and the wing has to read off you.
"It's quite difficult to try to get used to that. Obviously, I made a few mistakes, but as a first run-out I was pretty happy with that."
