Dan Biggar’s future at Toulon addressed by club president

Toulon president and owner Bernard Lemaitre has dropped the heaviest hint yet about former Welsh top flight player Dan Biggar's future at the club.

The Toulon boss previously publicly questioned whether Biggar would complete his contract with the French side after suffering a freak back injury during the transfer.

The cramp that sent him crashing to the ground last year has ended up being a tough injury to come back from, but Biggar now appears to have answered any lingering questions about his form in recent months.

Le Figaro reported that Bigard – who has another year left on his contract – is in talks with Lemaitre and could stay in the south of France for an additional period.

“When Dan came back from the World Cup he had a bit of a cramp,” Lemaitre said. “This was exacerbated by his sudden back injury while trying to convert. It took a very long time for him to come back. So we asked ourselves a question about what to do next. But he answered it.

“He wants to complete his contract and even extend it for another year if possible. We will see. Next season will be decisive for him.”

Biggar began his career with the Ospreys in 2008, making over 200 appearances and becoming a key player.

Biggar made his debut for the Wales national team in 2008, and has since made over 100 international appearances, appearing in several Rugby World Cup finals. His most notable international achievements include winning the Six Nations Championship three times. In 2018, Biggar joined Premier League side Northampton Saints. In 2022, he left Saints mid-season and signed for Toulon, continuing his career in Ligue 14.

The arrival of Italian Six Nations star Paolo Garbisi into the squad further complicated Biggar's situation earlier in the year, but Toulon appear to see value in retaining the Welshman.
