Could Cipriani be in line for an England call up?


It’s being reported that Danny Cipriani was prohibited from selection by the Barbarians against England, which points towards possible inclusion in Eddie Jones’ World Cup training squad.

Cipriani has been in stunning form this season for Gloucester, and although he missed out on an England call up, many thought Pat Lam might let the distinguished fly half have a run out against England and show them what they could be missing. However in a massive turn of events, Pat Lam has explained Cip’s was in a group of players who were placed on a restricted list by Twickenham.

“I spoke with Danny but he wasn’t available. I’m predicting that the players who weren’t available – and this isn’t guaranteed – will be in their World Cup squads,” Lam said.

“He was unavailable because there are some players that want to play but they have to be signed off by the unions, or their clubs.”
