Dismissed: Mike Phillips

Bayonne have sacked Wales scrum-half Mike Phillips after he appeared before the club's directors on Saturday.

Phillips met with club officials who confirmed that the British and Irish Lions star's contract would be terminated. An official letter confirming Phillips' dismissal will arrive on Monday, according to SudOuest.

Phillips is due to link up with the Wales squad on Sunday as they prepare for the November Internationals.

The scrum-half was suspended earlier this week after turning up at a video session under the influence of alcohol.

The suspension was not the first handed out by the club to Phillips, after he received a ten-day ban in September 2012.
