Danny Cipriani’s very different career after he quit playing rugby

Although he has not officially announced his retirement, Danny Cipriani, the former England playmaker, has been without a club since leaving Bath last year.

At 35 years old, Cipriani has maintained excellent physical condition and continues to hone his kicking skills with the guidance of England legend Jonny Wilkinson. The two also share a passion for playing basketball.<

“I’m just keeping it fit and enjoying my training,” revealed Cipriani.

“I think the best part at the moment is your whole career you’re told how to train, what to do, and so on and so.

I’m away from that, I’ve enjoyed my fitness, my movement more than ever. It’s really enjoyable. Playing lots of football.

“I also feel my best rugby could be in front of me,” said the 35-year-old. “Or I might never play again. And physically, I feel world-class.”

New career:

Having initially written for The Telegraph, Danny Cipriani has now established himself as a regular columnist for the Mail Online.

In a surprising career transition to writing, he has demonstrated his knowledge and strong opinions as a columnist.

Cipriani is expected to play a significant role in the 2023 Rugby World Cup team, and his insights are eagerly anticipated.

After trying a bit of punditry with BT Sport, he could also be recruited by ITV as part of their coverage of the tournament also.

The All Blacks legendary captain has revealed he’s dropped 17kg since retiring, shifting what he called ‘unnecessary rugby muscle’.

Since hanging up his boots following their 2015 World Cup triumph, McCaw has become obsessed with ultra-hardcore marathons and has shifted a lot of that weight to give him a speed advantage.

The 41-year-old, who weighed 107 kg, is now closer to 90kg since dropping the weight.
