Gareth Davies: Wales scrum-half gives up Las Vegas trip for World Cup fitness – Wales scrum-half Gareth Davies says he gave up a regular post-season trip to Las Vegas to ensure he was fully fit for the World Cup in Japan.

Davies was outstanding in the two wins against Georgia and Australia.

The 29-year-old was named man-of-the-match against the Wallabies after scoring a trademark interception try. 

“I had a quiet summer, didn’t do what I normally, so there were no trips to Vegas or anything like that,” said Davies.

Wales coach Warren Gatland said he was impressed with the Scarlets scrum-half’s fitness ahead of the World Cup training camps, after admitting he has been critical of Davies’ conditioning in the past.
