Phillips joined Bath Rugby for the start of the 2017-18 campaign after making nearly 100 appearances for Bristol, scoring 16 tries. In between his two spells with Bristol, the 29-year-old spent four years in the Premiership with Exeter and also had a spell with Championship side London Scottish.

A strong ball carrier, Phillips can play across both the second and back row.
