South Wales Police have appealed for witnesses, and the incident took place between a green Triumph Street Scrambler and a Kawasaki. 

They said: ‘Officers are appealing for witnesses following a serious road traffic collision that occurred at around 1.38pm on Sunday, December 5, 2021, on the B4603, Morfa Road, Landore, Swansea, opposite Landore Social Club.

‘The collision involved two motorcycles, a green Triumph Street Scrambler and a Kawasaki.

‘One rider was taken to hospital where he remains and is being treated for life-changing injuries.

‘The road was closed for a number of hours whilst investigations continued and we thank anyone affected during this time for their patience.

‘We would like to speak to anyone who witnessed the collision or has dashcam footage, anyone who stopped to provide assistance, or anyone who saw the motorcycles prior to the collision.

‘If you can help, please contact us quoting ref *424657, go to: https://bit.ly/SWPProvideInfo, send us a private message on Facebook/Twitter, via email: SWP101@south-wales.police.uk or by phoning 101.’

A crowdfunding page has been set up for Phillips with the aim of raising £10,000 to go towards his rehabilitation. So far, just under £7,500 has been donated. 

He signed a new contract with Ospreys earlier this year, having impressed head coach Toby Booth, and also trained with Wales last summer.
