In 2006 he toured New Zealand and Fiji with the Australian Schoolboys.[2]

As an 18-year-old, he said he preferred to play full-back in union, yet expected to play wing in league.[2]

In 2009 Davies commenced his rugby union career with the Queensland Reds. On 28 March 2009, he made his Super Rugby debut against the Chiefs.

In July 2011, during the Super Rugby semi final, Davies became the first Red to score 3 tries in a match in Super Rugby.[1]


In October, 2010, he was in contention for a place in the Wallabies 30-man squad to tour Hong Kong and Europe. This was despite a five month break without a match up until October,[4] and competition from within the Wallabies squad from outside backs Drew Mitchell and Lachie Turner, James O'Connor and Kurtley Beale.[4]

On 17 July 2011, Davies made his Wallabies debut against Samoa.[1]
