Dan Biggar gives update on his condition after head knock

The British & Irish Lions are sweating over the fitness of Dan Biggar with Owen Farrell on standby to play fly-half in second Test.

However, the Welshman is confident he’ll be fit despite failing an HIA against the Springboks.

“Unfortunately, I had to go off as when I came out of a ruck Siya Kolisi’s knee whacked me on the side of the head.” wrote Biggar in his post-match column for the Daily Mail.

“I feel fine and am already buzzing for next week.”

According to World Rugby, when a player fails a HIA, they must go through the six-stage return to play protocols.

Each stage must be separated by 24 hours, meaning if all goes well, the earliest Biggar will be passed fit to play in the second Test is on Friday.
