The scrum half and back row players have both signed long term contracts which will see them join the region in the summer.

Davies, who is Welsh qualified, began his professional career with Nottingham before moving to Top 14 side Stade Francias. The 24-year-old moved to Wasps in the summer, making eight appearances.

Jackson meanwhile has captained the England U18s squad and U16s squad during his time in Bath rugby’s academy. The 24-year-old signed a full-time contract with Bath in 2007 and made his debut for them against Leicester Tigers in 2008.

Jackson moved onto Doncaster Knights in the English championship and joined Wasps following a brief spell with London Welsh.

“I’m delighted both have committed to us, they will be two good signings which will increase the ability of our squad in Rugby World Cup year. Kingsley (Jones) and I have worked closely with Ed Jackson and we know how good he can be. As for Charlie he has always played to a high standard for Wasps since his return from Stade Francais. His roots are in Porthcawl and will prove to be an exciting signing as he joins forces with Sarel Pretorius and Luc Jones for the number 9 shirt next season.”

Swansea found it difficult to shake off Gomis' collapse, conceding another two goals in the second half.

A late goal from Gylfi Sigurdsson saw the Swans fighting it out in the last minutes but it was too late, finishing 3-2 to Tottenham.
