Rugby World Cup 2019: Danny Cipriani breaks public silence after England squad omission

My sister says this plugin is interesting!

Danny Ciprianihasspoken publicly for the first time since being axed from England’s Rugby World Cup squad, with the fly-half admitting that he “can’t be disappointed”.

The Gloucester No 10 was included in England’s first two training camps, but cut from the squad before last month’s warm-weather trip to Treviso, ending his hopes of making the 31-man party that will fly to Japan on 8 September.

The 31-year-old has been in direct competition with Owen Farrell and George Ford since Eddie Jones took charge of the national team, but the Australian has not taken Cipriani’s attacking-based game after regularly leaving him out of his squads. Jones has again decided to do just that for the World Cup, with only two natural fly-halves named in the squad in the form of Farrell and Ford and both Piers Francis and Henry Slade earmarked as emergency cover.

The omission ends Cipriani’s dream of featuring at a Rugby World Cup, having been overlooked by Martin Johnson in 2011 and cut at the final hurdle by Stuart Lancaster four years ago.

I would have loved to be involved in England’s Rugby World Cup squad. It has been a seven-year goal with different challenges along the way,Cipriani wrote in his column forThe Telegraph.
