FLY-HALF Sam Davies doesn't intend to be a "one-season wonder" after an impressive start to life at the Dragons.

The 26-year-old playmaker pulled the strings impressively in 2019/20 after his move east to Rodney Parade from the Ospreys.

Davies started in 16 of 19 games and put his stamp on the team, kicking the Dragons to wins against Worcester, the Scarlets and Cheetahs.

His form earned the eight-times capped left-footer a return to the international stage as a replacement in the uncapped fixture against the Barbarians and then a call-up for the Six Nations.

He reaped the rewards of moving to the Dragons instead of taking up tempting offers from France and England but is keen to stress that it's just the start.

South Wales Argus:

"In hindsight the move looks good, but at the time it was a tough decision," said Davies, whose former side have struggled at 10 since he left.

"Speaking to Dean (Ryan, director of rugby) pushed me over the line and having trust put in me was something that I had to take.

"It has gone well but it is not about resting on my laurels now. It is about kicking on. It's pointless coming in and being a one-season wonder.

"We've got to take learnings from what has been a pretty decent first half a year at Dragons and put them into the rest of this season and next."

Davies will have fiercer competition for the 10 jersey next season after the return to fitness of Josh Lewis, who ruptured knee ligaments last summer.

South Wales Argus:

The Dragons face a pair of derbies on the last two weekends of August to end the Guinness PRO14 campaign – travelling to the Ospreys and hosting the Scarlets – before their European Challenge Cup quarter-final against Bristol on Friday, September 18.

The Welsh tussles are set to be played behind closed doors and a decision has yet to be made for the Ashton Gate cup clash.

"Playing at Rodney Parade this season has been really good and the atmosphere has been outstanding. We've had that 16th man," said Davies.

"Until we experience playing behind closed doors I'm not sure how it is going to go. As players we're going to be focussed on the job at hand and make sure we put everything onto the pitch.

"I imagine it will be a bit weird but we will adapt, like the footballers are having to do now."
