Northampton Saints star George North says his side won't dwell on last weekend's surprise defeat to Wasps.

The reigning Premiership champions lost for the first time this season at Adams Park, but North is hopeful of putting things right on Sunday at Newcastle Falcons.

"Obviously Gloucester went so well, and when you go down to Wasps, it's a completely different atmosphere and a different game.

But for us, it was a bit of an eye-opener and we'll take that on the chin and work on the next one."
