Welsh out-half Dan Biggar is eager to get back on the field and is looking forward to playing alongside his international teammate Rhys Webb.

Biggar started last Wednesday's loss against the Auckland Blues but had to leave the field early. He failed a Head Injury Assessment and was unable to return to the pitch. 

He has since been cleared to play and was named in the starting line-up for Tuesday's clash with the Highlanders in Dunedin.  

The Ospreys' fly-half admitted it takes time to gel with such a big number of new players and he's looking forward to the familiarity which playing with Webb brings. 

"To play with Rhys, who I've played with since age-grade (rugby) is a big help," he said, adding: "It just makes a little bit of a difference when you've got a team that hasn't played a lot of rugby.

"If your key positions have played a fair bit of rugby together and have understandings, it does make things a fraction easier."

Sam Warburton returns to captain the team as the tourists look to build on the momentum of the win over the Crusaders.
