Wales playmaker Dan Biggar says he's relishing the 'privilege' of going head-to-head with Ireland's Jonathan Sexton in tomorrow's RBS 6 Nations opener.
But at a press conference, Interim Head Coach Rob Howley issued a plea for the 23-year-old to be given a chance to develop.
Rob Howley believes Wales have a side more that capable of beating Ireland in the opening game of the Six Nations on Saturday.
He's picked a strong side that includes thirteen of last year's Grand Slam winners. But there's one face that will be new to it all, as Nick Hartley reports.
The Wales team for this Saturday's Six Nations fixture against Ireland has been announced.
WALES: Leigh Halfpenny; Alex Cuthbert, Jonathan Davies, Jamie Roberts, George North, Dan Biggar, Mike Phillips; Gethin Jenkins, Matthew Rees, Adam Jones, Andrew Coombs, Ian Evans, Aaron Shingler, Sam Warburton (C), Toby Faletau.
REPLACEMENTS: Ken Owens, Paul James, Craig Mitchell, Olly Kohn, Justin Tipuric, Lloyd Williams, James Hook, Scott Williams.
The team for this Saturday's Six Nations game is expected today.
