Last week coach Warren Gatland said Davies was “unlikely” to face Les Bleus but he has made a swift recovery and is available for selection in Paris.
“It [the injury list] is not as lengthy as last week,” Wales forwards coach Robin McBryde told a media conference. “It’s been good to welcome back a few faces.
“We wouldn’t have chosen to test the depth this soon, but it’s great for those boys to have another opportunity, and it’s off the back of a successful autumn campaign. It’s got to give us confidence moving forward.”

The return of Moriarty was also a big plus for McBryde, who added: “We have taken a few knocks in the back row, but to have someone of Ross’ standing is great.
“He’s dynamic, he is still developing as a young player. He is good to have. He never takes a step back, so to have someone of Ross’ ability is massive.”
