The Scarlets sit near the top of the table in the Magners League after their 27-14 win over the Dragons in Newport on Friday. Scarlets scored three first half tries, with Jonathan Davies set up one and then scoring this solo effort shortly afterwards.
Davies, sometimes referred to as Jon to avoid confusion with his commentating namesake, has shown this season that he isnt far away from making a very competent step up to being a regular international player.
Still just 22, Davies has all the attributes and possesses incredible acceleration as well as brute strength. He is deceptively quick and is solid on defence. Hes now scored six tries in three games, and is many peoples teamsheets as the starting center for Wales while Jamie Roberts is sidelined.
On Friday night he earned another Man of the Match award after he put in a great showing, setting up a nice try for young George North, then scoring this impressive individual try.
He did pick up a slight ankle niggle, but looks to be okay for this upcoming weekends derby clash with local rivals Ospreys at Parc y Scarlets on Saturday night.
