11 July, 2018, 14:53
The Welsh Rugby Union has opted for Pivac over fellow Kiwis Dave Rennie and Scott Robinson, who were also on the shortlist for the post that will be vacated by Gatland upon completion of Japan 2019.
The reflex reaction whenever a significant coaching vacancy crops up is often to look to New Zealand for candidates.
Davies revealed a respected figure in New Zealand rugby had told him on that trip that he knew "leading players who had played under (Graham) Henry, (Steve) Hansen and Pivac - and who rated Pivac the best of the three".
Wayne Pivac will take over as Wales coach when Warren Gatland steps down after next year's Rugby World Cup, the Welsh Rugby Union has announced.
55-year-old Pivac previously coached Fiji between 2004 and 2007.

"It's both a huge honour and a privilege to have been asked to be the next Wales coach".
Pivac has performed the same role at the Scarlets since 2014, masterminding a Guinness Pro12 title a year ago and securing passage into the semi-finals of the Champions Cup in the same season. By that time, he will have been in charge for 12 years.
'I'll do everything in my power to live up to the expectations of the hugely passionate and knowledgeable rugby loving Welsh public'.
"To be able to complete the process this far in advance helps the Scarlets, helps Wales and affords me the luxury of time in which to prepare in earnest for one of the biggest jobs in the world game".
"We have secured the best man for the job and we have done so rigorously and decisively", said Phillips.
