Biography
A superbly accurate goalkicker, Alex originally signed for Welsh in 2011 as a fly half, but played most of his rugby at full back during the Club’s 2011/12 Championship winning season and has since further shown his versatility by also donning the number nine jersey - a position he’d only previously played at school.

The Club’s 2013/14 Championship campaign saw Alex add another 135 points, in 18 appearances, to his already impressive tally for Welsh in the league, including a first-ever try Championship try for the Club.

An injury, however, picked up in the 1st leg of the Club’s semi-final with Leeds Carnegie at Headingley brought his season to a premature end.

Alex had enjoyed a very memorable first season at London Welsh in 2011/12, racking up exactly 250 points in 28 Championship appearances, and 321 in total from 34 games in all competitions. His highlight that season arguably came in the 2nd leg of the Championship final at the Kassam Stadium when his 19-point haul helped the Exiles to a 29-20 win on the night.

During the Club’s previous flirtation with the Aviva Premiership in 2012/13, Davies’ kicked six penalties and a conversion at Bath in an excellent display of goalkicking. He also landed a match-winning conversion to beat Cavalieri Prato, 32-31, in the Amlin Challenge Cup.

Alex had joined Welsh in the summer of 2011 from Plymouth Albion, where he broke one club record and equalled another during a tremendous season at Brickfields, on his way to racking up 236 points in 25 Championship appearances.

Alex began his career at Sale Sharks Academy, where he spent two years before joining Waterloo RFC in National League One.

He joined Plymouth Albion in 2008, although a hernia operation restricted him to just 12 appearances in his debut season. In 2009/10 his haul of 87 Championship points saw him voted Most Promising Young Player by the club's supporters.

He spent two summers in New Zealand - in 2006 with North Otago where he was top points scorer with 115 points and 2010 at Green Island Rugby Club in Dunedin - and it clearly proved a beneficial experience judging by his performances last season.
