Danny Cipriani has been included in a 34-man England squad for the tour of South Africa in June.
And the number 10 took to Twitter to thank fans for messages of support.
Grateful for the opportunity. Really appreciate all the messages. Still a lot of work to be done. Starting with the semi final next week! 🐝🌹 pic.twitter.com/FuUHwxD9Ex

Cipriani, who will leave Wasps at the end of this campaign and has yet to reveal where he will play next season, won the last of his 14 England caps in 2015.
Jones said the 30-year-old had not been recalled because “I’ve never picked him”.
“So I’ve picked him for the first time,” added the England boss. “I’ve watched him play closely and he deserves an opportunity. He’s got to prove he’s the best 10 in the squad, or the best 15.”
