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.
It is important he gets an opportunity, but please can you keep the pressure off him. Welsh culture and the way we talk about our 10s.... it's important that Dan is given an opportunity and a chance, and he'll certainly be given a chance from the Welsh management. It's a big starting game for Dan and he's been exceptional this week. He's a key player and we'll support him in everything we ask him to do.
