Charlie Davies (born 23 May 1990) is an English rugby union scrum half playing for London Wasps after signing ahead of the 2010–2011 season. Davies began his professional career at Nottingham RFC in the RFU Championship, making his debut in the 2007–2008 season. In June 2009 he signed for French rugby giants Stade Français [2] and made four first team appearances for the club in the Top 14. Whilst at Stade Français, Davies was also called up to the England U20 national side and made one substitute appearance for them during the 2010 U20 Six Nations. In May 2010 it was announced Davies had signed for Aviva Premiership side London Wasps.[3] Davies was also named in the England U20 squad for the IRB Junior World Championship held in Argentina during June 2010, starting in the 36-21 group stage victory over Ireland and loss to Australia. He was also a replacement in the matches against Argentina and South Africa.[4]

Davies made his Aviva Premiership debut as a replacement on 10 September 2010 in a 29–17 defeat to Newcastle Falcons. During his debut season at Wasps Davies also played a number of games for his original senior club Nottingham on loan.
