Born in Croydon, Daly played youth rugby at Beckenham from age five before moving to Dorking in 2006 where he spent three years. He was educated at Cumnor House School and Whitgift School, after which he joined London Wasps's Elite Player Development Squad before progressing to the Academy.

He made his debut at centre against Exeter Chiefs in the Anglo-Welsh Cup in November 2010 whilst still a pupil at Whitgift and in the process became the second youngest player to represent the club. His first Premiership game followed later that month against Bath Rugby and he finished the 2010–11 season with six appearances which came at centre, full-back and on the wing.

Daly made his first international start against South Africa on November 12, 2016 in the old mutual wealth series. He started at outside centre starring alongside Owen Farrell who played Inside Centre. He also scored his first international points kicking a long range penalty in the 39th minute of the first half.

Daly scored his first international try for England when he started on the wing in England's 58-15 demolition of Fiji at Twickenham on Saturday 19 November 2016.

On 26 November 2016, he became the first England back, and only the second ever England player to be sent off at Twickenham. Daly went for a tackle in the air against Argentina's number 8 Leonardo Senatore who landed on his head and shoulders in the fifth minute of the first half, and was subsequently given a red card and 3 week ban. Despite Daly's dismissal and playing 75 minutes with a man down, England won the match comfortably 27-14.

Daly was named in the England team to face France at Twickenham in the first game of the 2017 Six Nations on Saturday 4 February. He scored a long range penalty and was denied a try by a last gasp tackle from the French. Daly started on the wing again against Wales in Cardiff on Saturday 11 February. With England losing 16-14 and 5 minutes left on the clock, Daly took a brilliant pass from Owen Farrell, escaped the despairing clutches of a positionally-confused Alex Cuthbert and sprinted 20 metres to dive over in the corner, winning the match for England. Daly scored his second try of the tournament during England's 36-15 win over Italy.

Daly was a talented cricketer as a teenager, representing England Under-15s and Surrey at various age-group levels. He was an all-rounder, with fast bowling his forte, and appeared good enough to possibly make the first-class county grade before he decided to choose rugby union.
