Biggar ready for Flood test
Ospreys fly-half Dan Biggar has hailed the ability of his Leicester counterpart Toby Flood ahead of their meeting this weekend.
The two teams clash at Welford Road on Sunday in the Heineken Cup, knowing that victory could go a long way towards them qualifying from an extremely competitive pool, which also includes Toulouse and Treviso. Having lost in the South of France last Sunday, the Tigers are in desperate need of the points and Flood will be looking to impress after struggling at the rainy Stade Municipal. Biggar admits he is expecting a tough test at the weekend and has described the 27-year-old as one of the best in Europe. "Personally I rate him as one of the best in Great Britain," Biggar told the ercrugby.com. "He doesn't get quite the credit he deserves. He's a great player, perfect for Leicester. He knows their game plan inside out, gives them what they want, and that's directness and honesty. "He knows exactly where people need to be and that's very underrated in a fly-half. He's one of the best in Europe and I'm looking forward to a head-to-head with him."
