Fresh from a return from a ban for being a sweary disrespecter of referees, Davies surpassed himself on Saturday when appearing to be poleaxed from the slightest of slaps from Saracens’ Will Skelton.
Skelton deservedly received a yellow card, but the reaction Davies, falling to the ground as if he’d been clubbed by Mike Tyson, was utterly ridiculous and equally worthy of sanction.
Brian Moore is correct when stating that this sort of play-acting should have no place in rugby.
I admit I was a fan of James Davies when he starred for Team GB in the Olympics, but he’s quickly establishing an unwanted reputation.
Perhaps his big brother should have a word?
