George North took a boot in the face towards the end of the first half. If this wasn't enough he collided with Welsh hooker Richard Hibbard, a blow which left him looking dazed and groggy for the rest of the game.
Many criticised the decision to leave him on the field for the rest of the match.
I really don't think George North should still be on the pitch. He looks very dazed......

If the powers that be have any balls, George North should be stood down until neurological damage assessed properly

George North looked liked he got knocked out, he looked lifeless when he hit the ground yet he's still on the field

Jonathan Davies was not one of those particularly worried about North's well-being.
Jonathan Davies really nailing the big concussion question there "the bang on the head made no difference, he was dreadful from the start".
