Danny Cipriani scoops top prize at Premiership awards

Danny Cipriani’s stellar debut campaign in Gloucester Rugby colours saw him named Gallagher Premiership Rugby Player of the Season at this evening’s star-studded awards ceremony.

The 31-year-old has been a key component of the Cherry & Whites this season as they finished third in the table, reaching the semi-finals for the first time in eight years.

Making the move from Wasps in the summer, Cipriani hasn’t been far away from various highlights reels in what has been one of the most competitive and exciting Gallagher Premiership Rugby seasons to date.

His 13 try assists and metronomic boot have kept Gloucester Rugby ticking and his head coach Johan Ackermann believes Cipriani deserves his Gallagher Premiership Rugby Player of the Season award, making him only the second person after Wasps’ Jimmy Gopperth to win this and the RPA Player of the Year in the same campaign.
