Davies was unhappy with his side's performance but insists they will be much better on Saturday.
"I thought we would have a lot more about us but now we go into Europe and will have a real crack at Munster next week," he said.
"Motivation won't be a problem for us. It's another big test but we went out there and gave them a game and hopefully we can do the same at Kingsholm.
"It's a huge occasion, a huge opportunity and there's a bit of history in this fixture. We're looking forward to it and it will be a week where we will bring onboard those lessons," he added.
