Wales international Dan Biggar made the switch to Northampton Saints from hometown club, Ospreys, at the start of the 2018/19 campaign.
After becoming the top points-scorer in Pro14 history the previous season, the fly-half made an instant impact at Franklin's Gardens; Biggar closed his first term with 23 appearances and 191 points, having seen Saints lift the Premiership Rugby Cup and reach the knock-out stages of the Premiership for the first time in four years, before adding a further 15 appearances and 127 points in 2019/20.
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, while simultaneously progressing through the Welsh age grades to make his full international debut in the 2008 Autumn Internationals aged 19.
After sinking the title-winning touchline conversion in the 2012 Pro12 Grand Final, Biggar had the chance to make the Welsh No. 10 shirt his own, starting all five games of the 2013 Six Nations. And from there the fly-half became a mainstay of the Welsh side, going into the 2020/21 season with some 87 caps – including ten appearances in successive Rugby World Cup competitions in 2015 and 2019, helping Wales to their joint highest finish in the competition in the latter as they reached the semi-finals.
And the fly-half's international success does not end there, in 2017 Biggar was named in the British and Irish Lions squad, making five appearances as the side toured New Zealand.
