Phillips eyes victory over Springboks
1 May 2014 10:24am
Mike Phillips has appeared in five of the last six British & Irish Lions Tests
British & Irish Lions scrum-half Mike Phillips is determined to help Wales end their long wait for a Test victory over South Africa this summer.
Phillips meanwhile, was dropped earlier in the year following his performance in the defeat to Ireland but an injury to Rhys Webb saw him recalled for the thumping win over Scotland.
He has history of performing well in South Africa - he was one of the stand-out players on the 2009 Lions tour - and Phillips is confident ahead of the two-Test tour.
"It's a great opportunity for us to go down there and get a big scalp," said Phillips.
"Scotland went down there last year and pushed them very, very close.
"And we've done really well against South Africa.
"We obviously haven't beaten them but we've pushed them all the way.
"Hopefully we can really push on and get a result this year. There's no point going down there otherwise."
