Dan Biggar

16th Oct 1989 1.88m/93kg Fly Half

Biggar has been a regular part of Ospreys squads and teams since 2007 and has had the honour of becoming the youngest man to reach one hundred appearances for the region along. He led the Ospreys to the 2012 Pro12 title, kicking the championship winner conversion.

Biggar made his Welsh debut at the tender age of 19 against Canada in 2008. Biggar was finally given an extended run in the Wales No.10 shirt during the victorious 2013 Six Nations campaign, starting all games at fly-half before topping the tournament off with eight points in the Championship decider against England.

He made his presence felt on the Test scene when he helped Wales pick up a rare win against South Africa in 2014, where he was awarded man of the match with a brilliant defensive performance. When the 2015 Rugby World Cup came around, Biggar assumed kicking duties for Wales – scoring 56 points in the process as Wales reached the quarter-final stage.

In April 2017, Biggar earned his first call up to The British & Irish Lions squad to tour New Zealand. Biggar's strength under the high ball - combined with his smart kicking from hand - have also been key to his rise in stature in Wales, for whom he started in all three Tests in New Zealand last summer.

Biggar would continue to perform on both a club and international stage and became the top points-scorer in Pro14 history towards the end of the 2017/18 season. At club level Biggar was the youngest player to pass the 200-appearance mark for the Ospreys at the age of just 22.. To date he has scored over 2,000 points for the region, earning a reputation as one of the league’s most accurate marksmen in the process.

In September 2017, Northampton Saints confirmed that he has signed a contract to join the East Midlands club in the summer of 2018.

Biggar made a big impact in his first season with Northampton Saints, making 23 appearances in his debut season at Franklin’s Gardens, ending the term with 191 points to his tally and helping the men in Black, Green and Gold to their first appearance in the knock-out stages of the Premiership in four years.

He took full control of the Wales 10 jersey during the World Cup, following an injury to Gareth Anscombe, and helped Wales to a fourth-place finish featuring in 6 of the 7 games scoring 41 points.

A test veteran of 79 test caps, 392 points and two World Cups, Biggar also boasts 64 caps in the Champions and Challenge Cup scoring 640 points.

Ahead of the 2020 Six Nations, Biggar has been named for the Wales squad. He has a total of 79 caps.
