Danny Cipriani Sets Sale for England
Danny Cipriani has confirmed he will return to England at the end of the current Super Rugby campaign, the fly-half agreeing a three-year contract with Sale Sharks to end his two-year spell with the Melbourne Rebels. The 24-year old will return to the Premiership looking to re-establish himself in the England set-up, three years since his last international appearance.
The versatile back revealed the news on Twitter, insisting he was determined to end his time Down Under with a successful season for the Rebels.
“I am going to be playing for Sale Sharks. I am looking forward to playing with the likes of Andy Powell and Mark Cueto.”
“I'm 100% committed to the Melbourne Rebels for this season, learning a lot from the coaches. The Melbourne Rebels is a great club and will give it my all for the rest of the season.”
Despite a mixed first season for the Rebels, where a number of off-field troubles had Cipriani making negative headlines, the fly-half finished the year as his side’s leading points scorer. Trouble continued the follow the 24-year old around but Cipriani continued to prove himself to be one of the most exciting stand-offs in the game. The move to Sale will allow Cipriani a chance to prove he deserves a chance to add to his seven England caps as well as improving the side’s live scores results.
Sale have also secured the signing of Richie Gray for next season, with the Scottish second-row agree to move from Glasgow to the Premiership despite interest from a number of French sides. The Lancastrians appear to have big plans for next season - something punters betting on sports should take note of - with the current campaign seemingly set for another mediocre mid-table finish.
