Gareth Davies developed through the Scarlets Academy after joining in 2006 and played his early club rugby at home town team Newcastle Emlyn. He represented Llanelli at Welsh Premiership level before progressing into the senior Scarlets environment.

He played for Wales at U18 and U20 levels and won six caps in the U20 side alongside Scott Williams and Taulupe Faletau.

He was the leading try scorer with 10 in the 2013/14 Guinness PRO12 season and his consistency throughout that campaign earned him selection for Wales’ summer tour of South Africa. His Test debut came as a replacement for Mike Phillips in a 38-16 defeat to the Springboks in Durban on 14 June, 2014. He made three more appearances off the bench before being picked for the 2015 Rugby World Cup.

An injury in the warm-up matches to Rhys Webb gave him a chance to shine in that tournament and he played in all five matches and scored five tries, the pick of which was in the win over England at Twickenham.

He marked his first start for Wales with two tries in the opening game at the 2015 World Cup against Uruguay in Cardiff. His other tries came against Fiji and South Africa.

He went on the 2017 summer tour to New Zealand and Samoa, but found himself being called-up to join the British & Irish Lions squad after playing in the win over Tonga in Auckland. He was a replacement for the 31-31 draw with the Hurricanes, but didn’t get on the pitch. He started three of the five matches in Wales’ 2019 Grand Slam campaign and came on as a replacement in the other two.

He scored a try in the Scarlets 2017 Guinness PRO12 final win over Munster in Dublin and also started in the defeat by Leinster in the 2018 final.
