Gareth is one of the few remaining members that played in the first-ever match for the Clayton Rugby Football Club. Davies joined the Bootleggers full time after finishing his collegiate career at ECU. A punishing ball carrier, Davies is the Clayton RFC all-time leader in tries scored. He received the club’s Most Valuable Forward award for the 2016/2017 season and then again for his play during the 2018/2019 season.
Davies has played for the Carolinas Rugby Union 7s and XVs Selects as well as the South Panthers. He was also named as Club Captain at the beginning of the 2018/2019 season.
