Alex Davis’ second Commonwealth Games appearance will be his first as England’s captain, the 29-year-old having taken on the role following Tom Mitchell’s post-Olympics move across the Atlantic.

Davis has been part of the national set-up since 2014 and has had to display no end of resilience along the way, sustaining an ankle injury which dashed his Rio Olympic dream on the eve of the competition just six months after the death of his father.

He also considered his future in the sport in 2019 but came through three shoulder surgeries to feature at Tokyo 2020, when he was part of the Team GB squad who finished fourth.

The Bristolian uses his own experiences to help others in the mental health field, volunteering for the Give Us A Shout charity, and is a keen reader of poetry when not on the rugby pitch.
