Wales Release Update On Dan Biggar’s Fitness

RBS 6 Nations Championship Round 1, Aviva Stadium, Dublin, Ireland vs Wales - 7 Feb 2016

Wales have released an update on fly-half Dan Biggar’s ankle injury.

The Osprey’s 10 limped off against Ireland on Sunday in the first half but the Welsh Rugby Union are refusing to rule out the 26-year-old for Saturday’s tie with Italy.

In a statement on the Welsh Rugby Union’s website, the WRU said:

“Biggar has made excellent progress with his recovery following the ankle injury sustained against Ireland on Sunday.

“Indications are that the injury is not considered long-term and decisions over his availability this weekend will be made later in the week.

“The squad return to training tomorrow (Wednesday) to prepare for their second RBS 6 Nations fixture against Scotland at Principality Stadium on Sunday.”
