Dan Biggar gave Wales an injury scare as he limped off with a knee injury after 20 minutes of Northampton’s 27-21 defeat by Saracens at Franklin’s Gardens.

The fly-half was helped off the pitch putting his appearance in next weekend’s Six Nations2020欧洲杯足球即时比分 clash with England in doubt.

Northampton tried to play down the injury but Biggar was clearly in pain as he left the pitch and must be a major worry for Wales coach Wayne Pivac ahead of the Twickenham match on Saturday.

Biggar was injured as he caught one of his own high kicks in trademark fashion and was wincing as he lay on the floor.

2020欧洲杯足球即时比分If Biggar doesn’t make it, Cardiff’s Jarrod Evans is the most likely stand-in but he has only got six caps compared to Biggar’s haul of 82. And a start against England would be only the second of his Test career.

Northampton director of rugby Chris Boyd said: "He's hyper-extended his leg in a collision and seems to be moving relatively okay.

"I don't think he's got any major structural damage from what I'm led to believe so it's one of those ones we'll wait and see.

"He seems to be walking around okay so I don’t think it is too serious. Everybody on the other side of the Severn will be hoping he is okay."

Losing 30-year-old Biggar would put a dent in Wales’ hopes of winning at Twickenham.

2020欧洲杯足球即时比分Evans was Biggar's deputy in the first three rounds of the Six Nations and other options are thin on the ground for Pivac.

Gareth Anscombe is a long-term injury absentee. Rhys Patchell is coming back to fitness after shoulder surgery but he is thought to be two weeks away from a return to action.

2020欧洲杯足球即时比分Dragons fly-half Sam Davies is another candidate and was in Pivac’s first squad when he came off the bench against the Barbarians. He won the last of his eight caps in 2017 against Samoa.

Another candidate is Bristol’s Callum Sheedy who was born and brought up in Cardiff.
