WALES AND LIONS scrum-half Mike Phillips has been asked to present himself to Bayonne directors tomorrow after reportedly arriving ‘under the influence’ for work over a week ago.

The incident, in which Wayne Haare and Stephen Brett were also reportedly involved, allegedly took place the morning after Bayonne’s 37 – 6 Amlin Challenge Cup victory over Grenoble on October 10.

The 31-year-old scrum-half, along with the Kiwi duo, reportedly showed up to the team video analysis session still under the influence of alcohol.

Phillips has previously been sanctioned by the club after complaints of his off-field behaviour. His latest indiscretion comes two years after that in-house suspension.
