St.Vincent’s Hospital Medical Staff: The head injury that he suffered. He was rescuscitated very well. The first priority was giving him a cat scan to determine the main problem. If there is a lot of blood around the brain, one can get unconscious. He had extensive surgery to allow his brain to extend.

James Sutherland: Phillip was a cherished son, brother and team-mate. In these darkest hours, cricket puts its arms around its brother. As a cricketer, Phillip was dearly loved.
