Dan Biggar comes under fire for referee incident in France

Wales scrum-half Dan Biggar has made the headlines across the channel following an interaction with a referee during a Top 14 clash.

Northampton Saints allowed the number 10 to join French club Toulon with immediate effect after the Welsh star asked to leave Franklin’s Gardens.

Biggar, who has 103 caps for Wales and started all three Tests on last year’s British and Irish Lions tour of South Africa, had already announced that he would be leaving Saints at the end of the season.

The 33-year-old’s last appearance for the Saints came in 40-36 win over Wasps in early October.

In total, he played 69 times for the club after joining them from Welsh side Ospreys in 2018.

Incident in the Top 14:

Fans can’t believe that the fly-half has learned another language in order to argue with referee’s across the channel.

One user wrote: “Impressive to see that Dan Biggar’s already learned enough French to argue with the referees”

A second commented: “Well that’s a given. Fluent in arguing with refs in numerous languages.”

Another said: “Biggar has a superpower and it’s being able to argue with refs in any language on Earth.”

Owen Farrell Voted The Most Hated Player In The World

England playmaker Owen Farrell has been voted as the most hated player in the world right now after a survey was conducted with more than 1,000 fans participated. 

We all love to hate. For every force of good there is in rugby union, there is an equal force of bad to provide balance. A yin to their yang. For every hero, a villain.

As much fun as it is to see the sport’s most treasured icons succeed, audiences can sometimes take equal pleasure in seeing a star plummet from the heavens and fall to the depths below.

We’ve compiled a list of those who, whether it be for their antics on or off the pitch, have developed an unenviable reputation in the game, not just among certain sets of fans or clubs, but by the entire football population.

#5. Dan Biggar (Wales)

Biggar is the epitome of players you hate until they are on your team.The way the fly-half continues to moan to referees vociferously has seemingly only got worse throughout his career.

It got so bad that popular online personality and diehard Scotland fan Glove39 made a video called ‘birdman’ mocking the way in which he always raises his arms in frustration to officials.
