Jonathan Davies has become an integral part of Wales’ midfield since making his international debut on the tour of North America in 2009.The Scarlets star has formed a formidable partnership with Jamie Roberts – with the duo becoming Wales’ most capped centre combination overtaking a previous British & Irish Lions duo of Steve Fenwick and Ray Gravell – to propel their country to back-to-back RBS 6 Nations titles.
Renowned for his attacking nous, he is also strong in defence and has been central in Wales’ record-breaking rearguard action that kept four consecutive clean sheets in theRBS 6 Nations.
Although born in Solihull, England, he moved to west Wales at a young age and began his rugby career at Whitland RFC, the same club as scrum-half Mike Phillips represented. He played age-grade rugby with Llanelli RFC and soon graduated to the Scarlets, where he has now made more than 100 appearances.
His early years at the west Wales region were hampered by injuries, notably a serious knee complaint during the Under 19 World Championships in 2006.
But he was a key component in the Wales Under 20 side that reached the Junior World Championships semi-finals in 2008, under the leadership of Sam Warburton and alongside Leigh Halfpenny .
After making his senior debut against Canada, he scored two tries against USA and was retained in Warren Gatland’s autumn squad.By 2011 the 25-year-old had established himself as a first-choice centre for Wales and he featured in every match of their march to the World Cup semi-finals. He also started every encounter of their 2012 and 2013 Championship triumphs.
He has 36 Tests and nine tries to his name, including a try in Wales’ agonising 25-23 loss to Australia in June, 2012..
