http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/rugby-union/36204133 wrote:Sale Sharks will sign former Wales scrum-half Mike Phillips from Racing 92 on a deal starting from next season.

The 33-year-old is Wales' most-capped number nine, playing in 94 Tests before retiring from internationals in 2015.

Phillips joined Racing in 2013 following spells with Bayonne, Ospreys, Cardiff Blues and Scarlets.

"He is a big, powerful and very skilful player and has plenty of experience playing at the top level," Sale director of rugby Steve Diamond said.

"Mike will be one of three ex-Racing 92 players at the club next season, alongside Brian Mujati and Juandre Kruger."

Phillips played five times for the British and Irish Lions, featuring in the 2009 tour of South Africa and the 2-1 series win over Australia in 2013.

God help the Sale 10 then. Slow ball above head height or down at his feet for most of the season.

Perhaps Cips got wind of them talking to MP and that decided his Wasps move.
