You certainly did Mike.
Former Wales and Lions scrumhalf Mike Phillips played his final game of rugby yesterday as his side Sale Sharks capped off their season with a win over Bath. The 34-year-old, capped 94 times by his country, announced his decision to retire at the end of the current campaign earlier this month.
Phillips was an integral part of two Grand Slam-winning Wales sides and appeared at four World Cups in addition to representing the British and Irish Lions in five Tests. The talented nine played club rugby in three countries, lining out for the likes of Cardiff Blues, French outfits Bayonne and Racing 92, and then Sale Sharks.
To mark his final game, Phillips borrowed a quote from the legendary Frank Sinatra and it’s top class.
