Mr Davies has a strong sporting background having played rugby to senior county (Oxfordshire) and first class standard with London Welsh before the professional era. He also played tennis to a high standard and was a junior Welsh representative and champion. He still play competitive tennis. He completed the Etap du Tour cycling event in 2007 from Foix to Loudenville which was a great cycling feat especially carrying a few extra pounds!! Mr Davies is also a keen sailor but most of the time he enjoys supporting his family with their activities!
