Profile

Ospreys fly-half Dan Biggar made his Wales debut against Canada in November 2008 following an injury to James Hook, and turned in a mature and assured performance considering his youth.

Biggar had previously starred for Wales at U20 level whilst playing his club rugby for Swansea in the Principality Premiership, before making his breakthrough into the full Ospreys squad.

With the Welsh fly-half landscape dominated by Hook and Stephen Jones, Biggar's emergence in 2009 brought a welcome selection headache for coach Warren Gatland. He won further caps on tour to Canada and the USA while Hook and Jones were on duty with the British & Irish Lions and started a November Test against Samoa, where his cross-kick produced Wales' try for Leigh Halfpenny.

At domestic level Biggar's form forced Hook into the centre in both the Magners League and Heineken Cup, forming a potent partnership in the process.

Loss of form and the rise of Rhys Priestland meant he only made three appearances for Wales in 2011 and 2012. But with Priestland injured, he won the race with Hook for the Wales No.10 jersey for the 2013 Six Nations. He enjoyed a solid tournament as Wales secured back-to-back championships.
