Wales fly-half Dan Biggar has backed head coach Wayne Pivac to succeed despite a mixed performance in the recent Six Nations tournament.

Pivac took in charge of Wales from Warren Gatland post World Cup in Japan last year after coaching Scarlets between 2014 and 2019.

The 57-year-old's first assignment with Wales was the Six Nations tournament earlier this year which the side went on to lose three out of the four games. However, three out of the four games saw Wales losing close margins of 24-14 to Ireland, 23-27 to France and 33-30 to England.

“It was always going to be a massive challenge, coming in for Warren Gatland, with the success he had over the last eight to 10 years," Biggar told Sky Sports.

“When you change something that has been in place for so long, it sometimes will take a little bit of time. We just fell short against France, we just fell short against England.

“In a new pattern and in a slightly new style of play, I think it’s certainly going to help us in terms of playing more attractive rugby and scoring more tries.

“I think that probably takes a couple of campaigns to get used to everything and I’m sure, come the Autumn Internationals, if we can get back playing, I think you’ll see us much stronger.”
