Wales & Lions Star Retires From International Rugby


Mike Phillips, Wales’ most-capped scrum-half, has announced his retirement from international rugby.

The 33-year-old Racing 92 player has appeared in 99 Tests – 94 for Wales and five for the British and Irish Lions.

He scored nine tries for his country and was a key member of the teams that won the Six Nations title in 2013 and Grand Slams in 2008 and 2012.

“This is a chance for me to bring this chapter of my life to a close,” said Phillips in a statement.
