Danny Cipriani seems destined to end his career without having played in a World Cup after he was left out of the 38-member England squad that flew to Italy on Monday for a 12-day training camp.

The Gloucester outhalf was voted the Premiership’s player of the season two months ago but his prospects of going to Japan in September appear no better than if he were lining up a penalty from halfway into a stiff wind.

Cipriani has won only two caps since Eddie Jones took over as head coach at the end of 2015. He was named in a 35-man squad this month but he did not feature in a camp in Bristol last week, ordered to focus on strength and conditioning work along with the Bath pair Anthony Watson and Sam Underhill, both of whom flew to Treviso.

Injury was not cited as a factor behind the 31-year old Cipriani’s latest omission. It was put down to selection with Jones continuing his policy of having two specialist outhalves, Owen Farrell and George Ford, backed up by Henry Slade and Piers Francis, who started their careers at No 10.

These extensions are quite magnificent!
