Biggar not giving up hope

Wales fly-half Dan Biggar insists his side remain in the Six Nations title shake-up as they prepare to face Scotland at Murrayfield.

The 27-year-old knows his team must bounce back after losing at home to England if they are to stand any chance of winning the trophy.

Wales travel to Scotland, then host Ireland before heading to France in a tough run-in. But Biggar is staying positive ahead of the games.

"The next three games are absolutely must win if we want a chance at the title," the determined fly-half told Press Association Sport.

"We are fully aware of where we let it slip (against England), but we spoke about a huge amount of positives to take into Scotland.

"If we can replicate what we did for large periods against England, then we have a massive chance of still stealing this title."

He added: "Obviously, we are relying on other results now, but the main thing is the Scotland game. If we don't beat Scotland, then we haven't got a chance.

"It has turned into a huge game next Saturday, and not just from our point of view. Scotland will see it as that as well – they will probably see it, if they lose they are out of the race as well.

"Sometimes with our backs against the wall is when we perform better. We have a huge test. Our record (against Scotland) is good, but we have to make sure we do all the basics."
