Injury blow hits Phillips

Date published: December 31 2014

The Scarlets will be without Emyr Phillips for up to 12 weeks after the hooker was confirmed to require shoulder surgery in the New Year.

Phillips, 27, dislocated his right shoulder in the West Wales derby game against the Ospreys last week and will have surgery on Friday.

The hooker has been capped three times by Wales, with his participation in the upcoming Six Nations Championship now in serious doubt.
