Wales winger George North embodied rugby spirit as despite pulling his hamstring he hobbled on to make sure he tackled the South Africa winger.

He then attempted to play on.

From someone that has pulled their hamstring in the past, for @George_North to keep running and make sure the catcher couldn’t make anything of that is fricking awesome #Hulk #WALvSAF 40 minutes left #BigShift #RWC2019— Matt Smith (@MattySmiffler) October 27, 2019
Absolutely gutted for George North. A player that makes your heart stop whenever he has the ball. #RSAvWAL— Vinay Patel (@VinayPatel) October 27, 2019
Huge respect for George North… Ham-string gone & tries to carry on… Rugby is a game where the players pretend to be fit for 80 minutes, unlike ⚽️! The pride of the jersey. 🏴 #RugbyWorldCup— Fabian Cowdrey (@fkcowdrey) October 27, 2019
