Danny Cipriani breaks public silence after England rejection

Danny Cipriani has spoken publicly for the first time since being axed from England’s Rugby World Cup squad, with the fly-half admitting that he “can’t be disappointed”.

“I would have loved to be involved in England’s Rugby World Cup squad. It has been a seven-year goal with different challenges along the way,”Cipriani wrote in his column for The Telegraph.


“But I can’t be disappointed because there was honestly no expectation from my side. It was never my right. I never thought: ‘Last season went pretty well, I should be picked’.

“All in all, I had two weeks in camp, then a week on my own with my sprint coach Margot Wells after being told I needed the extra conditioning. Then there was one final training session with game-based drills on the Friday, led by Eddie Jones.

“Afterwards, later that afternoon on my way back down to Cheltenham, he rang to say I would not be going out to Italy. Three days later, on the following Monday, I flew to Los Angeles and I have been here since.”
