Honour for Scarlets with Davies named in world XV
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.
