Wales star Dan Biggar undergoes dramatic body transformation during Rugby World Cup clash with extraordinary weight loss results

Wales fly-half Dan Biggar has revealed he lost a whopping 5lbs in body weight during his side’s World Cup opener against Fiji.

Biggar starred for Warren Gatland’s side as they made a winning start to the tournament with a 32-26 win over the Pacific Islanders.

The game took place in the heat of Bordeaux in south-west France and Biggar believes the high temperatures were a major contributing factor in the extreme weight loss.

“Before the match I weighed 14st 11lbs and after I was 14st 6lbs,” Biggar told the Daily Mail.

“It was so hot and sticky in Bordeaux that I lost five pounds in 60 minutes. There was so much sweat dripping off me that my shirt was drenched through.

“I asked the kit man If I could change my jersey at half-time but the spare shirt was the wrong size. I am a large and the spare was an XL.

“I prefer a shirt that is half a size bigger, unlike the guys who are in better shape and like to show off their muscles.”

In most cases, safe weight loss of 5lbs can take up to two-and-a-half-weeks, but despite the steep drop, Biggar admits to a late-night replenishing meal that would likely have pulled his weight a little close to its pre-match reading.

He added: “I got to bed at about 4.30am after our game against Fiji and felt totally relieved as my head hit the pillow.

“It is always difficult to get to sleep after a match because there is so much adrenaline in your body.

“Our families came to join us in the hotel and we had burgers and chips at about 2am, washed down with a bottle of red.

“It is a bit of a treat meal after the match because we burn so many calories — especially in a match like that.”

Wales continue their quest for world Cup glory on Saturday when they take on Portugal in Nice.

Gatland’s side are expected to make it back-to-back victories ahead of a much sterner test next weekend against Australia.
