FRENCH rugby union club Bayonne are expected to confirm today that Wales scrum-half Mike Phillips has been sacked.

Phillips, whose contract was not due to end until next summer, was hauled before bosses last week after it was claimed he turned up to a team meeting under the influence of alcohol.

The 31-year-old, who has 77 caps and toured with the British and Irish Lions this year, was last night due to join up with the Wales squad for the November internationals.
