Wales trio passed fit for Six Nations clash with Ireland

Dan Biggar, Taulupe Faletau and Leigh Halfpenny have been declared fit for Wales’ Six Nations clash with Ireland in Dublin on Saturday.

The British and Irish Lions trio missed the 12-6 defeat to England at Twickenham on February 10 but have returned to training.

George North, a replacement at Twickenham, and fellow British and Irish Lion Liam Williams are also fit.

Wales forwards coach Robin McBryde said: “Everybody has been given the green light. It’s good to have everybody back with a spring in their step and looking forward to Saturday.

“It’s nice to have headaches in a few positions and it’s always good to have plenty to choose from.

“There’s a competitive edge to the squad and it’s going to be a tough call on a few individuals I’m sure.”

Wales are unbeaten in their last three matches against Ireland and were 22-9 victors over Joe Schmidt’s side in last year’s Six Nations.
