Jones was spotted a black eye in the opening week of the Six Nations after his second row partner, Ball, struck a blow in Wales captain

The 35-year-old said very little about the incident in the press conference after beating Ireland, but North did reveal what happened on the RugbyPass Offload podcast

Rugby stars @George_North and @Jamie_T_Ritchie from Wales and Scotland discuss life as a rugby player in 2021 with RugbyPass Offload! 👶

“I try to stay away from the strikers when they are going about their business just because it is inevitably a physical game”Fortunately, the forward and backward units split their units and as far as I know it was a pretty good unit session

“At the end of the day, it’s just rugby and these guys are trying to get the best out of each other

“They have been reconciled since then. It was a little weird, a little uncomfortable that everyone was watching, but they have reconciled

“Al now had 195000 caps and is still strong The boys see what it brings and they must have the advantage of going to a friendly

“Sometimes it overflows and of course everything in the press gets blown up It was a 12 round fight and it was about points

“But these guys in this position need to have that advantage or you would lose,” explained North

The days leading up to a test match can create a stressful environment, and while a fight is never ideal, the North believes that intensity helps achieve standards

“Everyone is a friend and everyone has made up. Obviously no hugs because of Covid, but they made it. Not so, but you know what I mean!

“I can’t comment too much because both of them are taller than me, but at this level you need that advantage. You can’t go into a test match if you haven’t crossed all of the T’s and scored the I’s

“Sometimes it boils over, it’s a profitability business and of course things get a little hot”
