BBC Sport - Wales scrum-half Mike Phillips: I'm not very confident

I'm not very confident - Phillips

On the field he is the epitome of confidence, but off it the Wales and British and Irish Lions scrum-half concedes that he is a very different character.

The 32-year-old, who plays his club rugby for French side Racing Metro, says he has managed to fool a lot of people and "can go days without speaking to people".

In an in-depth interview with Sport Wales reporter Gareth Rhys Owen, Phillips also talks of his regret that his mother has had to read negative headlines about his off-field behaviour.

Sport Wales is on BBC Two Wales on Fridays and is available on BBC iPlayer for seven days after transmission.
