Shaun Davies is another familiar face to the state of Utah. With an extensive rugby career that ranges from winning two national championship titles with Brigham Young University to playing scrumhalf with the Eagles in the 2019 Rugby World Cup, Davies looks to make an impact as part of the coaching staff for the Utah Warriors.
Davies hails from Durban, South Africa. He made the move from South Africa to Provo, Utah where he attended college at Brigham Young University. Davies was a large part of why BYU brought home two National Championships in 2009 and 2012. He also played club rugby at Life University after departing from BYU.
Davies was called up as USA Eagle 432. His first cap as an Eagle came June 16, 2012 against Georgia. Davies holds a record of 19 wins, 1 draw and 7 losses during his career as an Eagle. Davies can also add professional rugby to his resume as he also played for the Ohio Aviators (PRO Rugby) and the Glendale Raptors (Major League Rugby.) Davies officially announced his retirement from international rugby November 22, 2019.
“Utah is a very special place to me,” Davies said. “I’m grateful to the Warriors for this opportunity to help build something Warriors Nation can all be proud of.”
