Welsh captain Carys Phillips wins her 50th cap in defeat to Spain
Welsh captain Carys Phillips won her 50th cap for her country in their 29-5 defeat to Spain at the weekend.
Spain led 12-0 at half time and kept scoring in the second half through Lourdes Alameda, Anne Fernandez and Anna Puig. Wales scored a late try to appease travelling supporters in Madrid with Alecs Donovan going over.
Despite the heavy loss, Phillips took to Twitter to commemorate her achievement: "Thank you everyone for the kind messages and support for myself and the girls over the weekend! Not the result we hoped for but we rebuild and go again next week! Diolch yn fawr."
