Jonathan Davies has moved a step closer to earning his recall to the Welsh national team after playing 40 minutes for the Scarlets on Saturday.

It was the centre's first competitive action since injuring a pectoral muscle against South Africa in early November.

He had been expected to start playing first team rugby again in late February or early March but, after facing London Irish, he could still play some part in his country's Six Nations campaign this season.

Following Davies's comeback at the Madejski Stadium, Scarlets head coach Simon Easterby said: "It was always our intention to give him 40 or 50 minutes.

"It looked like he was fatiguing a little bit but he was pretty happy with the work he got through.

"He has been out for such a long time so he is going to be a little bit rusty, but it was a good hit-out for him.

"It certainly wasn't a game where you could hold back. It was full-on, and they (Irish) were pretty physical.

"He was released back from the Welsh camp to us, so I would have thought he will go back into the Welsh camp on Monday.

"But whether he will be involved with the Wales team next weekend is down to him and down to our medical team and their medical team to see exactly where he is at in terms of his return to playing."
