A new signing ahead of the 2022/23 season, Aidon Davis is a former South African Schools and Junior Springbok loose forward who joins us from the Toyota Cheetahs.

Davis, represented South Africa at the World Rugby Junior Rugby World Championships in 2013 and 2014. He initially started played for the Eastern Province Kings and also represented the Southern Kings in the Super Rugby before heading to Europe.

He enjoyed two years playing in France, firstly for Bayonne and then in 2017 for RC Toulon, before returning home to South Africa with the Cheetahs.

Having played Currie Cup, Vodacom Cup, Super Rugby, Top 14 and in the United Rugby Championship, Davis arrives at Sandy Park with plenty of big game experience under his belt.

A player with a phenomenal work-rate and hard to stop in defence, his versatility around the back five scrum will make him a handy recruit to the Chiefs pack.
