Dan Biggar, Taulupe Faletau and Leigh Halfpenny have been declared fit for Wales' NatWest 6 Nations clash with Ireland in Dublin on Saturday.

The trio missed the 12-6 defeat to England at Twickenham on February 10, but have all returned to training.

George North, a replacement at Twickenham, and fellow British and Irish Lion Liam Williams are also fit.

Wales forwards coach Robin McBryde said: "Everybody has been given the green light. It's good to have everybody back with a spring in their step and looking forward to Saturday.

"There's a competitive edge to the squad and it's going to be a tough call on a few individuals I'm sure."
