A statement from Regional Rugby Wales on behalf of the Four Welsh Regions, the Scarlets, Ospreys, Newport Gwent Dragons and Cardiff Blues said: "Everyone across the Four Welsh Regions is united in wishing our respectful thanks to Gerald Davies for his dedicated work for the good of Welsh Rugby on the WRU Board for the best part of a decade."
As a true legend of our game in Wales, he continues to be a valued and respected ambassador for Welsh Rugby around the world and his influence and input will always be appreciated by all those connected with Welsh Rugby.
"As one of our Welsh rugby greats, Gerald has worked passionately for the whole game, with the integrity and honour you'd expect of a British and Irish Lion and our players, coaches, partners and executives wish him all the very best for the future."
Judgement Day is back at the Millennium Stadium for 2015 with the Welsh Rugby Union (WRU) and Regions confirming today that tickets will cost just £10 per head to see all four of Wales' GUINNESS PRO12 sides in action under one roof.
