Nigel Davies joins Gloucester Rugby as Director of Rugby in June 2012.
Davies was the Head Coach at Welsh region the Scarlets since June 2008. The Llanelli born and bred centre won 29 caps for his country between 1988 and 1997, before joining the Welsh national coaching set up under Gareth Jenkins. Davies is one of the very few Welsh players to have both coached and captained his country.
As a player of undisputed talent, he played 498 games for Llanelli becoming one of only 21 players to have scored more than 100 tries for the Scarlets where he also played in a record nine Welsh cup finals, winning six. He has been associated with top-flight rugby for more than 28 years as a player and then coach.
He returned to the Scarlets as Head Coach in May 2008 leading the development of the Scarlets squad which includes the emergence onto the regional and international scene today of some of Wales' most exciting new rugby talent.
