Biggar skippers Wales on 100th Test appearance

Northampton Saints fly-half Dan Biggar will lead out Wales against Scotland on his 100th Test appearance, in their first home match of the 2022 Six Nations on Saturday (kick-off 2.15pm, live on BBC and S4C).

The No.10 captains his country in front of a home crowd for the first time at a sold-out Principality Stadium, for what will mark a century of internationals (96 Wales and three British & Irish Lions) for the 32-year-old.

“To get a hundred Test matches in total for any player from any country, it’s just a magnificent achievement,” said Wales head coach Wayne.

“It shows the hard work and dedication he has put in and the sacrifice he has made over a number of years to get to this stage.

“We expect Scotland to come down full of confidence. They’ve started with a good win. Across the board they are very competitive and committed side that throws everything at every play. We know that’s going to be tough work for us and a big challenge that we’re looking forward to and are up for.

“Really excited about to getting out in front of a full house at Principality Stadium for our first home match of the 2022 Guinness Six Nations. There is nothing better.”
