Former Welsh international John Bryant, who opened a new Cardiff Eden Park Store in April on the first floor at the Capitol Centre, was on hand to supply the clothes
"All our team suits are supplied by Eden Park and it really is top quality gear. Some of the clothes on show today would go well in my wardrobe and I have picked out a rugby top which John has kindly let me have," said Scarlets centre Davies, who makes his first Millennium Stadium start this Saturday in the Invesco Perpetual Series clash with Argentina.
"The squad had a rest day today, so we were available to take an hour or so out to help out Eden Park. But we are straight back into training tomorrow to continue preparation for the Pumas."

"The Wales players have all been really helpful and Jamie Roberts, who is the official Cardiff Eden Park ambassador, certainly wears the range well."
