Wales and Lions legend Mike Phillips is still taking some flak for his Twitter spat with Niall Horan last month.

A group of Irish fans waited on after Racing Metro's 25-15 win over Castres last weekend and began singing 'What Makes You Beautiful' at Philllips as he made his way from the stadium.

Phillips' Wales and Racing team mate Jamie Roberts took a video of the event with the message: "Nice to see @mikephillips009 smiling for his new found fans!"

One Direction's Niall Horan became embroiled in an online Twitter spat with Welsh scrum-half Mike Phillips after Ireland's victory over the Welsh at the beginning of February.

"Mike Phillips is like a child throwing his toys out of his pram," 20-year-old Horan wrote during the game. "His attitude is terrible, looks like a right arrogant idiot."

Phillips invited the 1D singer to come down to the Welsh training ground.

"Bring the rest of The Beatles with you," Phillips wrote. Thankfully, fullback Rob Kearney was on hand to offer Horan both emotional and physical support, telling the pop sensation: "I've got your back."

Kearney and Phillips had clashed during the game after the late try by Paddy Jackson. Horan swiftly thanked Kearney, saying Phillips was simply 'raging' that "Sexto beat them on his right foot!"
