Davies: Biggar and Webb can make pivotal Wales contribution

British and Irish Lion Jonathan Davies believes Wales will benefit from the ‘sixth-sense’ between Rhys Webb and Dan Biggar this Autumn.

Davies, who made three appearances for the Lions in 2013, is currently out of action with a knee injury and will miss the chance to turn out for Wales in the World Cup.

However, he believes that the understanding between Ospreys duo Webb and Biggar in the half-back positions could be vital to Warren Gatland’s side.

But, while the pair are favourites to take the starting No.9 and No.10 jerseys, Davies knows they will be taking nothing for granted in their preparations.

“They do work really well together,” said the British & Irish Lion.

“Having a partnership at regional level helps, but with Dan and Rhys they have spent their entire senior careers together stretching back to under-20s level, when I was in the same squad as them.

“They have a bit of a sixth-sense thing going on. They understand what the other is going to do next and react accordingly.

“Both of them played well last season and I’m sure they’ll carry that form into the World Cup.

“Dan and Rhys will know they can’t rest on their laurels.

“No-one will feel sure of a spot in the side. It is great for the coaches that there is such competition.”
