Explosive winger George North says he has apologised to Wallabies scrum-half Will Genia for his exuberant try celebration in the British and Irish Lions' first Test victory last weekend. 

British and Irish Lions winger George North evades a tackle by Australia's Will Genia to score a try during the first Test at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane on June 22, 2013. North says he has apologised to Wallabies scrum-half Genia for his exuberant celebration before scoring the try.

The Welsh flyer was ecstatic after scoring a majestic 60-metre solo try in the Lions' 23-21 win over Australia and has been criticised for pointing his finger at Genia as he crossed the try-line.
