With Gloucester already deprived of the services of a number of players on international duty at present, it means that Davies has to manage his squad skillfully but he has faith that those selected will rise to the occasion.
"It is a case of managing resources, and coming up with an appropriate selection for each game.
"The LV= Cup will provide us with an opportunity to give game time to some of the players who haven't, to this point, featured as much as they would like.
"We kick off with a testing trip to Northampton, and we will need a number of experienced players on duty. But it will also be a chance for some of the younger players to show what they can do at senior level."
Next up will be Japan, who become the latest international team to grace the Kingsholm turf in recent times, and Davies insists that Gloucester will treat the fixture and the opposition with respect.
"The game in general in Japan is on the up, and the performances of the national team reflect that. You only have to look at their win over Wales in the summer to see that.
"Facing international class opposition, we'll probably go quite strong for that game as we want to deliver a high quality performance in front of our own supporters."
Four days later, the Newcastle Falcons come to town for round two of the LV= Cup, a fixture which Davies stresses also holds great significance.
"We've already defeated Newcastle once this season, and I'm sure they'll want to put the record straight.
"However, it's important for us to put in a performance to send us into the Aviva Premiership game at Harlequins the following week with some momentum behind us.
"With that in mind, I'll look to try and involve most of the players who will be on duty at the Stoop to make sure we're as battle hardened as possible and ready to go."
