Mike Phillips back in Wales fold

MIKE Phillips' indefinite suspension from Wales squad duties has ended.

The 28-year-old was banned "with immediate effect" on 17 June following allegations of an incident involving the scrum-half in Cardiff city centre. However, Phillips met Wales Rugby Union bosses yesterday and apologised, leading to a statement from the WRU which confirmed he would be allowed to return to the squad and take part in World Cup training from today.

Phillips said: "This is the most embarrassing thing that has happened to me in my career."
