Wales international Dan Biggar made a big impact in his first season with Northampton Saints after joining from hometown club Ospreys at the start of the 2018/19 campaign.
The fly-half made 23 appearances in his debut year at Franklin’s Gardens, ending the term with 191 points to his tally and helping the men in Black, Green and Gold to their first appearance in the knock-out stages of the Premiership in four years.
Before arriving in Northampton, Biggar had risen through the ranks at the Swansea-based Ospreys – becoming the youngest player to make 100 appearances there at the age of just 22.
Progressing through the Welsh age grade sides, the fly-half made his full international debut in the 2008 Autumn Internationals aged 19.
His good club form continued as he topped off an incredible 2012 season with a match and title-winning conversion from the touchline in the Pro12 Grand Final, notching up a number of man-of-the-match performances along the way that season.
Biggar was finally given an extended run in the Wales No.10 shirt during the victorious 2013 Six Nations campaign, starting all games at fly-half before topping the tournament off with eight points in the Championship decider against England.
When the 2015 Rugby World Cup came around, Biggar assumed kicking duties for Wales – scoring 56 points in the process as Wales reached the quarter-final stage.
Biggar would continue to perform on both a club and international stage; he toured New Zealand with the British & Irish Lions in 2017 – scoring 35 points in five appearances – and became the top points-scorer in Pro14 history towards the end of the 2017/18 season.
