Former Wales playmaker Dan Biggar has received a slated return date to the rugby field following his unexpected back injury.
Biggar’s distressing collapse during a conversion attempt for Toulon on November 4 left fans concerned, and the playmaker has been sidelined since.
The eagerly awaited comeback for Biggar is now set for the Top14 clash against Toulouse on December 23.
However, this timeline could potentially rule him out for the European match against his former club, Northampton, just a week prior.
Coach Pierre Mignoni said: “He is better but we’re not going to see him back on the field right away. We still have to wait at least three or four weeks.
“We hope to get him back for the European Cup or just after.”

Rugby World Cup referee’s reveal the ‘toughest’ players to referee
In fairness, dissent in international rugby isn’t as big of a problem compared to something like football. But who are the worst players to manage in rugby history?
Well, we’ve discovered quotes from six of the world’s finest officials down the years who told stories about trying to control some of football’s bad boys.
Interestingly, one name cropped up on three occasions…
Matthew Carley – Steve Borthwick
On Borthwick: “A difficult question. When I first started refereeing in the Premiership Steve Borthwick was one of the guys who was pretty intimidating.
“He saw that everything was on ‘his terms, whether you like it or not’. He had such presence. I think you learn how to deal with people like that as a ref, but Steve Borthwick, was as tough as they come.”
