Gareth Davies 'favourite' for WRU chairman role says Kingsley Jones

Newport Gwent Dragons chief executive Gareth Davies is "favourite" to become chairman of the Welsh Rugby Union according to the region's head coach Kingsley Jones.

Speaking on Scrum V, Jones said Davies has all the attributes for the role.

Former Wales international Davies and Llanelli head of rugby Anthony Buchanan won more votes than WRU chairman David Pickering.

Pickering, chairman since 2003, will stand down at the WRU's AGM on 19 October when the 18-strong board will be reformed.
