Bennett backs Biggar as Wales fly-half

Wales half-back great Phil Bennett says the loss of Rhys Priestland for the Six Nations is a huge blow but believes Wales must turn to Dan Biggar at fly-half.

Scarlets fly-half Priestland is set to be out for six months after undergoing surgery on an Achilles tendon ruptured in the Heineken Cup loss to Exeter.

Wales lost all four autumn internationals and begin the defence of their Six Nations crown against Ireland on 2 February in Cardiff.
