Blessed with a brilliant sidestep and searing pace, Gerald Davies is widely regarded as one of the finest wingers to have played the game. 

Davies amassed 46 caps for his country between 1966 and 1978 and scored 20 tries. He played a full part in the 1971 Grand Slam – the first of three in seven years. 

The British Lions tour to New Zealand later that year saw Davies at the peak of his powers, and three tries in the final two tests helped secure a famous series victory. Davies captained his country on the 1978 tour of Australia, the last time he was seen on the international stage. 

Awarded a CBE for his services to rugby and young people in 2002, Davies was team manager of the Lions in South Africa in 2009, and also served as a national representative on the board of directors of the WRU from 2005-14.
