Aled Davies is a Welsh international rugby player who currently plays for Saracens in the Gallagher Premiership.
Capped by Wales at Under-16 and Under-18 level, the scrum-half made his professional debut for Scarlets in the 2009/10 season, going on to make 120 appearances for the region before joining Ospreys in 2018.
The first of Aled’s 20 Wales caps came in 2017 on their summer tour to New Zealand when he came off the bench against Tonga, before starting in a win against Samoa a week later.
He also featured in four of the five Six Nations fixtures during Wales’ 2019 Grand Slam campaign including a start in the win over Italy in Rome, as well as featuring at the World Cup in Japan.
Aled debuted in the 2019/20 season for Sarries scoring on the final day against Bath, and his half-back partnership with Owen Farrell has been crucial during the Championship campaign of 20/21.
Aled and his family became supporters of Encephalitis International after his father, Huw, became ill with encephalitis in September, 2006.
“My family turned to Encephalitis International when my dad became poorly and they were a comfort to us at a very difficult time,” said Aled.
“Sadly, my dad is no longer with us, but I hope to honour his memory by raising awareness of encephalitis and supporting others affected by this devastating condition.”
