Fly-half Dan Biggar has hit back at former Wales wing JJ Williams following his man-of-the-match display in Saturday’s 13-6 win against England.

Williams said Wales “would not win the World Cup” with Biggar lining up at 10 but the Northampton half-back played a starring role in the win in Cardiff.

“Special thanks to JJ Williams for all his comments this week,” Biggar told Channel 4.

“It has been really motivating and support for the team.”

Biggar has been left as Wales’ first choice World Cup fly-half after a serious knee injury suffered by Gareth Anscombe.

Wales coach Warren Gatland also brushed off criticism from former Wales and British and Irish Lions legend Williams.

“Dan needed to play 10 because he has been coming off the bench and doing a great job when we’ve had Anscombe,” said Gatland.

“I thought he was really good.

“I don’t know about that former Welsh player. Was he really old? Played in the 70s probably? Did he play over 50-odd years ago? Probably. That does explain a few things.”

Wales have also claimed their official place at the top of the world rankings for the first time as they rose above New Zealand.
