Biggar ruled out of Uruguay game

9th October 2019, 19:16 by Aidan Perkins

Dan Biggar will sit out Wales' final Pool D game against Uruguay due to the head injury he suffered in the win over Fiji.

Biggar sustained the blow in the 29-17 victory on Wednesday which secured his country's place in the quarter-finals of the World Cup and will now miss the Uruguay game on Sunday.

Coach Warren Gatland confirmed the news but was more upbeat over injuries picked up by wing Josh Adams and centre Jonathan Davies, although they are likely to be rested anyway ahead of the quarter-finals, which will be against either England or France.

"He (Biggar) didn't do a HIA against Fiji, he was just removed from the field," said Gatland. "It means that he won't be in consideration for Sunday and he will have to go through protocols.

"Josh just got a dead leg and Jonathan with his knee, something similar. But you never know with knees."
