Biggar to start for Wales against Ireland

Northampton Saints fly-half Dan Biggar is set to earn his 88th Test cap on Sunday, after Wales named their team to face Ireland.

The 31-year-old No.10 starts his country’s opening 2021 Guinness Six Nations encounter in Cardiff (February 7, kick-off: 3.00pm).

“We are looking forward to kicking off our campaign this weekend and putting into action two really good training weeks,” said Wales head coach Wayne Pivac.

“We made strides forward through the autumn and we are looking to take that into Sunday and into this tournament. The Six Nations is a fantastic tournament and is important for us rugby wise but it is important for so much more this year.

“It is important for communities across the country and we want to play our part and give everyone something to look forward to and to get excited about on the weekend.”
