Danny Cipriani reveals he will be playing his rugby away from England next season
Danny Cipriani has revealed that his last two games in England are “just around the corner” and that he will be playing his rugby abroad next season.
Cipriani currently plays his rugby with Gallagher Premiership wrestlers Bath, having joined the club after taking a short break from the sport after a few seasons with Gloucester.
The former England international has spent most of his career in his home country, having played for Wasps, Sale Sharks, Gloucester and Bath, although he also spent time in Australia with the Melbourne Rebels.
Cipriani’s time playing rugby in England is now about to end, as he revealed in an Instagram post.
Danny Cipriani announces he is leaving Bath.
“My last games in England are just around the corner! I decided to leave to discover a new country and create good memories with my family,” Cipriani said.
“Timing is key, play too early and the defense can read it. Play too late and you’ll never get the pass. You have to feel it and then react accordingly!
“Over the years I have accumulated an incredible loyal following. I am grateful. From the bottom of my heart. Thank you.”
Several destinations are on the English program.
Cipriani gave no specific indication as to where he might end up next season, although there are no shortage of clubs around the world that would give the talented half a chance.
France, Japan and the United States are perhaps the most likely destinations, with the latter two in particular proving to be a comfortable home for world-class players winding down their careers.
Although Cipriani has struggled to make a massive impact this season with an out-of-form Bath side, just three years ago he was named Premiership Player of the Season.
