Joker in the pack James Davies told Warren Gatland it was high time he was handed a start at seven after he was picked for Wales’ World Cup team to face Fiji.

The 28-year-old will play in his first tournament match in place of rested Justin Tipuric.

And he will line up alongside older brother Jonathan, 31, for just the second time in Welsh red.

James Davies has not featured since August 31 against Ireland where he only lasted 51 minutes
