Daniel "Dan" Biggar (born 16 October 1989, in Morriston) is a Welsh international rugby union outside-half, currently playing club rugby for the Ospreys. A former Wales Under-20 international, in October 2008 he was selected for the Wales national rugby union team squad for the 2008 Autumn internationals series, making his debut against Canada on 18 November. He is the youngest player to reach 100 games for the Ospreys.

On 18 January 2010 he was named in the 35 man Wales national squad for the 2010 Six Nations tournament.

After 18 months in the wilderness, including missing the 2011 Rugby World Cup, good form for the Ospreys saw Biggar recalled for the Welsh squad in 2012. This good form was topped off by the match-winning conversion from the touchline in the 2012 RaboDirect Pro12 Final, as well as a number of man-of-the-match performances in the run-in at the end of the season. Biggar finally got his chance in the Welsh number 10 shirt in the victorious 2013 RBS Six Nations Championship campaign, starting all five games at Fly Half, thanks to a Rhys Priestland injury. Biggar impressed many, capping off the season with a drop goal, conversion and penalty in the Championship decider against England.
