Biggar leads Wales for France clash

Northampton Saints fly-half Dan Biggar will captain Wales for the fourth time as they face France in Round 4 of the Guinness Six Nations on Friday. 

The 32-year-old will notch up his 99th appearance in a Wales shirt at the Principality Stadium, as he leads his country into the penultimate round to face currently unbeaten France. 

Head coach Wayne Pivac said: “France are the in-form team in the world at the moment. Any team that can score 40 points against New Zealand, plus having recently beaten Ireland in this competition, are going to be hard to beat.

“They have players a number of world-class players and are a big side that will test us physically and at the set piece.

“We’re really excited to be back at Principality Stadium this week. The guys love playing at home. It’s just fantastic having the crowd there.”
