Dan Biggar Now A Doubt For Wales With Six Nations Looming

Wales could potentially be missing two of their most experienced out-halves when they kick off their Six Nations campaign against Scotland at the Principality Stadium. 

Warren Gatland has already been hit with the news that Rhys Priestland will likely miss the entirety of the competition due to the hamstring injury he picked up against Scarlets while playing for Bath in the Champions Cup last weekend.

Priestland won’t link up with his international colleagues as a result and will undergo his rehabilitation at Bath instead.

Now there is concern over Dan Biggar. The British and Irish Lion injured his shoulder in Ospreys’ loss to Clermont Auvergne on Saturday. He took a blow to his shoulder towards the end of the game and was replaced by Sam Davies.

According to BBC Sport, Biggar will undergo an assessment on Monday by Wales’ medical staff to determine the severity of the injury. Rhys Patchell and Gareth Anscombe are the other two out-halves named in Gatland’s squad and it would be a huge blow if Biggar was unavailable for the game against Scotland on February 3rd.

In better news for Wales, George North did make his comeback from injury as a second-half replacement for the Northampton Saints as they were trounced by Saracens in the Champions Cup on Saturday in a game which finished 62-14 in favour of the European champions.
