Looking forward to the season ahead Davies said; “Having spent my near 15 year playing career with Llanelli RFC it’s an honour to be returning to the club as head coach.

“As a former player myself I know how special the club is and I was immensely proud to pull on the Llanelli RFC week in week out. As well as developing a clear and aligned game plan for the immediate future ensuring that Llanelli is competitive in the new-look Principality Premiership I also believe it’s vitally important that we create an environment that nurtures pride in the shirt.

“We have a very proud history that gives us a solid foundation to build on and develop our own legacy going forward. We have a lot of potential within the group as players, coaches and backroom staff alike and I’m looking forward to seeing the fruits of our combined labour.”
