Scarlets scrum-half Gareth Davies was on hand to help launch the 2024 Guinness Six Nations at the media day in Dublin on Monday.

In the absence of official Wales skipper Dafydd Jenkins, who was unavailable because of club commitments with Exeter, Davies joined head coach Warren Gatland in the Irish capital.

Speaking to the press, Davies said: “It’s an honour to be part of another Six Nations squad. When I first came into the environment in 2014, I was 23 and one of the youngsters; 10 years down the line and I’m now the oldest in the squad, I didn’t think I’d be saying that, but I still feel hungry, still feel good.”

Asked about the prospect of an all-Scarlets half-back partnership with possibly Sam Costelow or Ioan Lloyd, the 33-year-old added: “Sam and Ioan are two fantastic players. I have played with Sam over the last couple of years and he is a fantastic talent and only going to grow, both are in their early 20s and have a big career in front of them. Hopefully they can settle into the international stage quickly. I’m sure they will.”
