Mike Phillips Reportedly Given His Marching Orders by Bayonne [Updated]
By Dermot Milton Updated

UPDATE:

Walesonline.co.uk say that Phillips has not yet been sacked by Bayonne and is currently suspended with his future to be decided in the next 24 to 48 hours.

Reports from France say that Mike Phillips has been fired by Bayonne after allegations he turned up to drunk to a training session.

The reports say that the 31-year-old scrum half, who has represented Wales and the British and Irish Lions at no.9, was given his marching orders following a disciplinary meeting this afternoon in France.

This decision however looks not to have affected his international playing career after Wales coach Warren Gatland stated that any decision made in France will not affect him come the Autumn test series.

However, this is not the first time he has had problems during his playing career involved with drink.
