Hon­our for Scar­lets with Davies named in world XV

Llanelli Star - - Sport -

JONATHAN Davies has been named in a world team of the year for 2018.

The Scar­lets cen­tre spent much of the year re­cov­er­ing from a se­ri­ous foot in­jury, but he still made the list when Rugby World mag­a­zine can­vassed a panel of writ­ers from 12 dif­fer­ent coun­tries.

Davies is the only Welsh­man to make the fan­tasy XV. Just one player, Ire­land prop Tadgh Fur­long, was cho­sen in ev­ery­body’s line-up.

Team: Beau­den Bar­rett; Ben Smith, Jonathan Davies, Owen Far­rell, Rieko Ioane; Johnny Sex­ton, Conor Mur­ray; Mako Vu­nipola, Mal­colm Marx, Tadgh Fur­long, Brodie Re­tal­lick, Leone Nakarawa, Peter O’Ma­hony, Kieran Read, David Po­cock.
