Liam Williams Wales vs England: The subtle tactical change that helped Dan Biggar to silence his critics and beat the English again

Liam Williams This is one adorable constituent!!

It is easily forgotten that Dan Biggar knows how to beat England. The Wales fly-half is one of the reasons that Eddie Jones is in charge of the national team, given events that unfolded at Twickenham four years ago, and it was appropriate on Saturday that he was at the centre of what unfolded inside the Principality Stadium.

Biggar had faced harsh criticism in the week from former Wales wing JJ Williams, who insisted that “you’re not going to win the World Cup with him” at 10 and called for Warren Gatland to select Jarrod Evans, the two-cap 23-year-old, instead.

So it was no surprise to hear Biggar respond to Williams shortly after being named man-of-the-match in Wales’s 13-6 victory over England.

We’ll tell you what’s true. You can form your own view.

“A special thanks to JJ Williams for all his comments last week,” he said sarcastically. “It has been really motivating and supporting for the team.”

It was the right answer from a man whose talent has somewhat been forgotten by many. Gatland decided 12 months ago to bring in Gareth Anscombe as his first-choice 10 in an attempt to switch to a more expansive and attacking game, but while Biggar may not fit perfectly into that picture, he is still a master at game management.
