Halfpenny and Biggar return to Wales training

Six Nations: Wales v England

Full-back Leigh Halfpenny has returned to training, five days before Wales play England in Cardiff.

The British and Irish Lion, 30, returned to full-contact training with Scarlets last week for the first time since suffering concussion in November.

However he was left out of the matchday squad for their defeat against Benetton.

“He trained with us last week and we will integrate again this week,” said backs coach Rob Howley.

“Any news on selection will be taken at the end of the week.”

Fly-half Dan Biggar, who was taken off injured for Northampton Saints last week, also returned to Wales on Monday to take part in training.

“He has come in, he will have some physio and then he will take part in training,” said Howley.
