Ospreys scrum-half Rhys Webb is keen to resume his partnership with fly-half Dan Biggar against Racing Metro on Saturday.

The halfback duo are on a high after helping Wales to their first win in 15 years over the Springboks at the weekend.

And Webb is confident they can build on that form by helping the Welsh region to victory against their French opponents at the Liberty Stadium this weekend.

“Playing with Dan so much has obviously helped our form,” he said.

We play week-in, week-out with the Ospreys and we went into the Wales camp and played week-in-week-out again.

“I think it’s only good for the side to have a nine and ten dictating the game. It’s pretty pleasing, and he deserved man of the match against South Africa.

“He’s been on fire in the last couple of games, putting us in the right places.”

The Ospreys have battled without Webb and Biggar in their ranks and lost four successive matches in the Pro12 and LV=Cup.

But Webb is confident Biggar can play a similar role for his region as the one which helped him win the man-of-the-match award in Wales win over South Africa.

“He is a big voice on the field and he’s a good leader as well,” added the number nine.

“Like me, he tells the forwards where he wants them to go and how we want to finish the game.

“We came together in a bit of a huddle in the last ten minutes against Suth Africa to say what we needed to do. Everyone bought into it and we came away with the victory.”
