The win over the Blues was comfortable enough but could easily have been more emphatic.
Davies was conscious of that when he addressed the media post match but that the Doncaster Knights game this weekend offers another opportunity to fine tune things.
"It's what preseason games are all about really. To find out where you are and what you need to work on.
"We played a bit too much of the game in our own half in the first half rather than maybe looking for territory.
"On top of that, when we did get in reasonable field position and start to go through the phases, there were too many handling errors.
"From an attacking point of view, we were probably better last week against Leinster but it's good that we experience this now. We know where we went wrong and we have a chance to put those right next week.
"What we did do well was stay in the game. We defended reasonably well and our set piece, certainly our scrum, was very strong.
The fixture was a testimonial game for Alex Brown and Nick Wood and both were presented with specially embroidered shorts before the game to mark the occasion.
Davies, an individual who knows a lot about loyalty having played all his rugby with the Scarlets, is ideally positioned to appreciate the significance of the feat.
"It's pretty unique these days for players to stay with the same club for 10 years and to have two guys doing that this year is special.
"For them to stay here that long says a lot about what these place means to them, the support, the heritage, everything that makes up what Gloucester Rugby is about."
