Dan Biggar the first regional player to reach 2000

Post by LordDowlais on Mon 19 Dec 2016, 12:23 pm

It may have gone unnoticed among the mayhem of the Ospreys’ 71-3 thumping of Grenoble in Pool Two of the European Challenge Cup on Saturday that the Wales outside-half is on the brink of a truly stunning feat in the regional game.

For Biggar needs just 13 more points to become the first player to complete 2,000 in regional rugby.

No one else has even got close to the mark.

Only two other players — Ben Blair, with Cardiff Blues (1,078), and Rhys Priestland, with the Scarlets (1,064) — have passed 1,000 points for a region in competitive games.

It truly is some effort by Biggar, who didn’t take over as front-line goal-kicker for the Ospreys until 2009-10 after making his bow 18 months earlier.

He could reach the milestone against the Scarlets at the Liberty on December 27 or against Newport Gwent Dragons at Rodney Parade on New Year’s Day.

This would be an astonishing feat for Biggar, I cannot believe how far in front of all others he his in Wales, well done Dan. OK

Dowlais, I have a strong suspicion you didn't write any of that apart from the last line. warning

Then again, passing other writers' work off as their own is a common trait among Wales Online journalists... chin

Why waste the time typing it yourself, and for some reason you lot do not like reading WOL, so I just copied and pasted it instead.

Without acknowledging that you'd done so!

It's called plagiarism, Lord Dowlais!

And who likes reading WOL?! It only seems to be you that likes it!
