This week Eddie Jones has revealed in what circumstances he’d consider recalling Danny Cipriani, and it’s very unlikely.
His superb club form for Wasps this season has led to clamour for a recall, one steadfast Australian Jones has ignored.
The Australian boss has admitted he does not consider the 28-year-old as a back-up squad option, instead calling up Harlequins teenager Marcus Smith.
“My argument with him (Cipriani) is that if George Ford and Owen Farrell were out injured, then there’s a possibility,” revealed Jones.
“We’d only bring him in the squad as the main No10, but I wouldn’t have him in the squad as a supporting No10,
“I have ongoing discussions with all players: whether they like these discussions or not I don’t know and I don’t really care.”
With both Ford and Farrell having decent injury records, it’s unlikely that the Aussie would ever be without both of them, making a potential recall very unlikely for Cipriani.
