Biggar named in Wales' Autumn squad

Saints' fly half Dan Biggar has been named in a 37-man Wales squad ahead of the upcoming autumn Under Armour Series.

Wales welcome back eight British & Irish Lions to the squad which recorded three test victories against South Africa and Argentina in the summer, with Biggar amongst those named as fly half options.

The number ten, who has started in all seven of Saints' games so far this season and scored 59 points along the way, will be looking to add to his existing 62 international caps as Wales face Scotland (3 November), Australia (10 November), Tonga (17 November) and South Africa (24 November) this autumn.

"This autumn is the start of a 12-month countdown to the Rugby World Cup and it is a huge opportunity for the players," said Wales Head Coach Warren Gatland.

"We have added in a lot of experience with eight British & Irish Lions coming into the squad so there is a lot of competition for places."
