Davies was capped by Wales at Under-16 and Under-18 level and made his professional debut for Scarlets in the 2009/10 season, going on to make 120 appearances for the region before joining Ospreys in 2018.
The first of Davies’ 20 Wales caps came in 2017 on their summer tour to New Zealand when he came off the bench against Tonga, before starting in a win against Samoa a week later.
