Six Nations

Biggar could be fit to face Scotland

Dan Biggar could be available for Wales' Six Nations clash with Scotland at the Principality Stadium on Saturday having made good progress in his recovery from an ankle injury.

Biggar limped off after 20 minutes in the 16-16 draw with Ireland on Sunday after he sustained a knock at kick-off as he rushed to collect the ball.

Rhys Priestland performed well upon replacing Biggar, but head coach Warren Gatland could have his first-choice fly-half available for the weekend, with a decision set to be made in the coming days.

"Dan Biggar has made excellent progress with his recovery following the ankle injury sustained against Ireland on Sunday," a Wales statement said.

"Indications are that the injury is not considered long term and decisions over his availability for this weekend will be made later in the week.

"The squad meet back up tomorrow [Wednesday] to prepare for the clash against Scotland at Principality Stadium on Saturday."
