Danny Cipriani urges fans to back Marcus Smith after being overlooked by Eddie Jones
A number of fans voiced their displeasure after England head coach Eddie Jones called up Marcus Smith to the training squad, with many bewildered why Danny Cipriani is overlooked again.
This comes after Cipriani led Gloucester to a dominant win over Harlequins at the Stoop on Sunday.
And to make matters worse, Smith was on the bench for the visitors.
Double kick in the windpipe for Danny Cipriani.
Then their 10 gets the England call.

What does Danny Cipriani have to do to be in the England squad?

As a big English rugby fan I feel genuinely let down and short changed that we don't get to see Danny Cipriani in an England jersey. What an absolute waste of talent.

It’s clearly not about individual rugby talent, otherwise he’d have been picked long ago. Whatever it is that Eddy Jones sees as risky in Cipriani clearly isn’t going to change any time soon.

I watched the Quins game and Cipriani was sublime! I know he has his moments off the field but not to look at him now is just weird

Marcus is a top quality player! Let’s support the decision. Appreciate the message 👊🏽
