Rob Lloyd News

Scarlets, Wales and British & Irish Lions centre Jonathan Davies has won the vote for the number 13 jersey in the All-Star Regional #UltimateXV being voted by fans online.

Foxy polled 55%, seeing off the challenge of Jamie Robinson (Cardiff Blues), Andrew Bishop (Ospreys) and another former Scarlet Matthew J Watkins, who was representing the Dragons in the vote.

Davies has made 158 appearances in a Scarlets jersey over 11 seasons sandwiching a brief spell with Clermont Auvergne in France.

Regarded as one of the best centres in world rugby he was player of the series for the Lions in Australia in 2013 and New Zealand four years later. A member of Wales’ 2019 World Cup squad that reached the semi-finals in Japan, he is currently recovering from a knee injury suffered during the tournament.
