Phillips: Staying put
Wales scrum-half Mike Phillips has dismissed speculation that he is about to quit the Ospreys.
The Swansea-based region have been rocked by the departures of Lee Byrne and James Hook to France, while Craig Mitchell has also confirmed he will leave in the summer.
However Phillips has admitted that talk of him leaving is just "nonsense".
"I have a contract with the Ospreys that has three more years after this one and that is that really," Phillips told the Western Mail.
"I am happy to be there. Talk of me leaving is nonsense.
"It's quite disheartening that James and Lee - two world-class players - are going. We're good friends as well, so I'll miss them.
"But I think it is great for them because they will have new experiences, learn a new language and get out of Wales."
