Rugby fans rage as Danny Cipriani is left out of the latest England squad
Gloucester fly-half Danny Cipriani has been left out of England’s 36-man squad for their training camp in Bristol, which begins on Sunday.
And it’s fair to say fans are not happy…
Let’s not get too carried away with who has and hasn’t been picked by Eddie Jones for the @EnglandRugby training squad. That won’t be the squad announced for the Autumn Internationals and he loves plying mind games! @DannyCipriani87 is England’s best 10 fact!

Ben Stokes: Hey “Danny Cipriani” hows things?
Danny Cipriani: Eddie Jones dropped me for conviction stuff, which given he’s an Aussie, is just ironic.
Ben Stokes: I told you to play cricket if you wanted to keep beating folk up and getting away with it.

Sometimes it ain’t about what goes down on the field. Sometimes it’s about what goes down in the clubs. Cipriani is a risk, no-one wants the rest of the team to be collateral damage for his nonsense. https://t.co/k2pErWfjAs

Fuck off has Eddie Jones actually picked Ford ahead of Cipriani in the England training squad

Mind games from Eddie. 🤨 Cipriani is at his best when he has a point to prove.

This is a joke. “Cipriani will be judged on his rugby” – plays well for Gloucester then is left out. Meanwhile, Chris Ashton gets banned for 7 weeks but is included, as well as Manu Tuilagi, a guy who can barely string 2 games together. Baffling decisions.

100%, squad will look completely different for Autumn Series and IMO, Simmonds and Cipriani are arguably in the top 5 of in-form players in the league.. Jones loves playing mind games and getting the media talking.

I don’t understand Eddie Jones and RFU in all this Cipriani circus. What must he do to convince them? https://t.co/I9YH9wsUyC

Alex Lozowski or Danny Cipriani. It’s insane. I bet Jones rates Piers Francis over Cipriani…

Do you think, Cipriani not being the first choice kicker at Gloucester has hurt his chances?
— PAJD92 (@pajd92) September 20, 2018
Is this the first squad since Cipriani got arrested on a boozy pre-season night out? Maybe Jones doesn’t want that immature behaviour in the squad? (despite Cipriani’s undoubted great form at the moment!) He’d better hope he’s not making a selection rod for his own back though!

NO CIPRIANI ???!!!??? WTF ??? Idiots !!!

I think it’s a massive sign of respect Jones has for Cipriani that he thinks he is that good that he doesn’t even need to see him train…
