Biggar returns for Wales to play France

Northampton Saints fly-half Dan Biggar will start wearing the No.10 jersey for Wales this weekend, as Wayne Pivac’s side lock horns with France in Cardiff.

The 30-year-old is set to earn his 82nd cap for his country after fully recovering from a concussion sustained a fortnight ago, which kept him out of Northampton’s home fixture against Bristol Bears.

“We want to build on what we have done so far and are looking to be more accurate with what we do and improve on that aspect,” said Pivac.

“Saturday is going to be a packed Principality Stadium, we know the atmosphere will be electric and it is set for a big day in Cardiff.”
