Dan Biggar joined Sam Warburton, Rhys Webb, Jonathan Davies, Leigh Halfpenny and Justin Tipuric in playing for Wales at the inaugural World Rugby Under 20 Junior Championships and graduating to Grand Slam and British & Irish Lions glory.

A product of Gowerton Comprehensive School and Gorseinon RFC along with Halfpenny, he played for Wales at U18 level before playing alongside his famous team mates in the 2008 tournament in Wales, helping the home side to finish fourth overall.

He went on to make his international debut against Canada later that same year at the age of 19 – six days after Halfpenny, but before the rest of his illustrious Under 20 colleagues. He won his second and third caps against Canada and USA on the North America summer tour of 2009.

After missing out on selection for the 2011 Rugby World Cup, he stamped his mark at the highest level by starting all five games in the 2013 Six Nations title winning season. He also played a part in all five matches in the 2019 Grand Slam campaign.

In 2014, he started in the 12-6 win over South Africa in Cardiff and the following year began all five Six Nations games as Wales missed out on the title on points difference. At the 2015 World Cup he took over as Wales’ main goal kicker after Halfpenny was ruled out of the tournament through injury and kicked 23 points in the 28-25 pool stage win over England at Twickenham. He was named man of the match in that game and ended the tournament with 56 points. That helped him to win the vote to be named the BBC Wales Sports Personality of the Year for 2015.

He toured New Zealand with the British & Irish Lions in the summer of 2017 and on his return he joined English side Northampton Saints. That move ended an 11-season stint at the Ospreys where he scored 2,203 points in 221 matches. The youngest player to reach a century of games for the Ospreys by the age of 22, he helped them to win the Celtic League titles with stunning final successes over Leinster in Dublin in both 2010 and 2012. He scored 1573 points in what is now the Guinness PRO14 tournament, topping the scoring charts in 2010/11, 2011/12 and 2013/14.

He became only the sixth Welsh player to score 300 points for his country – prior to the 2019 World Cup warm-up games, only Neil Jenkins, Stephen Jones, Halfpenny and James Hook had scored more points for Wales.
