Dan Biggar has decided to end his Wales career after the World Cup.

Biggar has played 109 Tests for Wales since making his debut as a 19-year-old in 2008 and has twice toured with the British and Irish Lions, in 2017 and 2021.

“I’ve decided to call time on my Wales career after the World Cup,” outside-half Biggar wrote in his Mail on Sunday column.

“It’s 15 years since I turned up to my first camp and it feels like the right time to walk away.

“Playing 10 for Wales takes its toll. Everyone’s got an opinion and there’s always someone better than you.

“There have been plenty of moments when I’ve copped it and I’m proud of how long I’ve lasted.”
