Davies has urged Wales to finish their summer series on a high
Jonathan Davies insists beating Australia Down Under is "vital" to Wales' ongoing development.
The Six Nations Grand Slam winners face the Wallabies in their final summer Test in Sydney on Saturday, and while the series has already been lost the chance to claim a first victory against them Down Under since 1969, remains.
And Davies, a try-scorer in the 25-23 loss in Melbourne, is desperate to finish the tour on a high.
"What's vital for this team is how we react," said the Scarlets centre.
"We must react in a positive manner as we've got to finish the tour on a good note. It is very important we came down here and got a victory.
"Although the test series is lost now, I think for the development of this squad to the autumn we have to make sure we get a victory and ensure we keep focused."
