North looking towards World Cup

North scored two Test tries on Tour in 2013
British & Irish Lion George North insists he is excited about what the future will bring after being cleared to resume training following his head injury.
But the 23-year-old has now been cleared for training ahead of the World Cup, after being named in Wales' initial 47-man squad by Warren Gatland.
The last three months have admittedly been a tough test for North to overcome, but he is confident that he will hit the ground running when he returns to the pitch.
"I'm OK; it's been a bit of a long road," said North. "I'm feeling fit and well now, and looking forward to what's ahead.
"I'm not in a bad place, and I take massive confidence knowing it's bad luck.
"People can say it's a situation I put myself in, but in the cold light of day I've just been unlucky.
"I'm looking forward to getting back, and once I get back into that full environment I'll be like a kid in a candy shop as I always am."
