Wales head coach Warren Gatland believes that Mike Phillips's form will not be affected for the Autumn Internationals, despite getting sacked by Bayonne.

Wales head coach Warren Gatland believes that scrum-half Mike Phillips will be focused on international duty, despite getting sacked by French outfit Bayonne.

The 31-year-old had his contract terminated after allegedly turning up drunk to a video analysis session on October 11.

"He's got a couple of issues that he needs to address and sort out, but he's not the only one in sport that has things that need to be addressed, and we will continue to support him as much as we can," Gatland told BBC Radio Wales.

Wales's opening Autumn International is against South Africa on November 9.
