Just to prove that I'm entirely unbiased when it comes to slagging off Welsh rugby players, it appears that Wales and Lions star Mike Phillips has now managed to get himself into a spot of bother, having been arrested over an alleged assault on a taxi driver in a dispute over a fare in Penarth, Vale of Glamorgan.

Phillips joins other sporting luminaries such as Dennis Wise and Joey Barton in having run-ins with cabbies - hardly a club you'd be desperate to join.

Of course, I must stress that no charges have yet been brought and Mr Phillips' agent has said that there was "nothing at all" in the allegation.

Then again, his agent is none other than Mike Burton, the first Englishman ever to be sent off in a rugby international (Battle of Brisbane, 1975)...
