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.

House of Rugby is back with a brand new URC show – hosted by RugbyLAD founder Jason Hennessy, Ireland international Megan Williams and Olympic sevens star, Greg O'Shea. Follow and subscribe to it HERE.

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.”
