A WELSH legend will be the special guest at an upcoming event organised by Colwyn Bay Rugby Club.

Mike Phillips, who surpassed the record set by Dwayne Peel as the most capped scrum-half Wales’ history, will be on hand at the charity evening on Friday, September 6, which will be held at the Conwy Comrades Sports and Social Club on Church Street.

The 36-year-old has enjoyed a standout career and represented the Welsh side on 94 occasions, while also being part of two tours with the British and Irish Lions squad.

Phillips, who briefly returned from retirement in 2017 to play for the Scarlets, played in all five matches of the 2008 and 2012 Grand Slams and all five of the Championship retaining season of 2013.

He also took the field in six of the seven fixtures at the Rugby World Cup in New Zealand in 2011.

In addition to the address, there will also be the chance to meet and take photos with the popular figure during the evening, with tickets priced from £45.

This will also include a two-course meal and a charity auction will be held on the night featuring a wealth of exciting prizes.
