Jordan won six NBA titles and is seen by many as basketball's greatest ever player.

And Biggar, who is one of the world's finest No.10s, possesses similar leadership abilities, according to Boyd.

“If you watch that documentary of Michael Jordan that’s going around, he was an incredibly hard taskmaster for the guys at Chicago Bulls when they decided they wanted to be the best in the NBA,” Boyd told the Rugby Paper.

“Michael led that and you will see exactly the same with Dan.

“Dan’s world class. He’s as good as anyone I’ve ever coached. He’s a tough rooster!

“Whatever word you use, whether it’s grit, mental toughness or resilience, guys like Dan just do not go away.”
