Scrum V people - Jonathan Davies

Get to know the team who make the Scrum V show...

Jonathan Davies

Scrum V regular and rugby superstar Jonathan Davies is one of the most well-known and respected pundits on British television.

How did you get into it?

I always did interviews and television pieces whilst I was still playing.

I also did some punditry with Grandstand for rugby union and rugby league.

At the end of my career I was offered the Director of Rugby post at S4C.

I spoke to a friend of mine, Ray Stubbs of Football Focus, he put me in touch with Grandstand, and the rest is history, as they say!

I now work for BBC Network as well as BBC Wales.

Best and worst moments

The worst moments have to be any Welsh defeat when sat next to Jeremy Guscott!

Jonathan Davies

In rugby terms it has to be the adrenaline rush of every big occasion.

For the media - punditry on Wales v England at Wembley and commentating on Leicester beating Stade Francais at Parc des Princes.

The worst moments have to be any Welsh defeat when sat next to Jeremy Guscott!

Advice to anyone hoping to reach the top

Be honest in your commentary and as impartial as you possibly can, which is sometimes very difficult!

What is the one thing that you would still like to do?

Play golf in Augusta.
