Jonathan Davies was born in England, but raised in the Fox and Hounds pub in Bancyfelin with younger brother James. The Davieses became the 33rd set of brothers to have played for Wales when James won his first cap against Italy in 2018, but up until July, 2019, the pair hadn’t played together in the same Welsh side.

Jonathan won caps for Wales at U18 and U20 levels and was in the Welsh team that finished fourth on home soil at the inaugural World Rugby Under 20 Championships, playing alongside future British & Irish Lions team mates Sam Warburton, Leigh Halfpenny, Justin Tipuric, Rhys Webb and Dan Biggar. He played in six successive Tests for the Lions on the 2013 and 2017 tours, when they beat Australia and drew the series in New Zealand. He was voted player of the series for his part in the 2017 tour and was voted BBC Wales Sports Personality of the Year.

Having made his Scarlets debut in 2006 he graduated into the senior Wales set-up for the 2009 summer tour to North America. His full Wales debut came against Canada in Toronto and he went on to score twice in the 48-15 victory over the USA.

His Six Nations debut came in a home defeat to England in 2011. That was the first of 14 appearances for Wales that year as he became an ever-present in the side. He played in all seven 2011 Rugby World Cup matches in New Zealand, helping Wales to finish fourth.

In 2012 he was the midfield anchor in Wales’ Grand Slam success. He scored twice in the opening victory in Ireland and was a regular once again a year later as Wales made it back-to-back titles. He also played in all five games in the 2019 Grand Slam campaign, captaining Wales for the first time in the win over Italy in Rome.

He started a record 48 Tests at centre for Wales with Jamie Roberts and one more with the Lions.

In November, 2013, he swapped Parc y Scarlets for Stade Marcel Michelin as he joined TOP14 outfit Clermont Auvergne on a two-year deal. He helped them to reach the 2015 Champions Cup final and was in the side that went down to Toulon in an all-French final at Twickenham.

A knee injury ruled him out of the 2015 World Cup, but he returned to Wales and Scarlets colours after signing a National Dual Contract later that year. He helped the Scarlets win the Guinness PRO12 final against Munster in Dublin in 2017, but missed the 2018 final through injury.
