Angry Fans Urge Danny Cipriani to Move to Toulon After England 6 Nations Snub

Angry Fans Urge Danny Cipriani to Move to Toulon After England 6 Nations Snub

Danny Cipriani won’t be in the England squad for the 6 Nations after missing out on Eddie Jones’ selection.

The England head coach named his squad for the tournament ahead of its big kick-off on February 6.

While he’s receiving praise for the decisions to name Ollie Devoto and Josh Beaumont in the team, there’s considerable shock and anger that the Sale Sharks fly-half misses out.

Cipriani has been in impressive form so far this season and turned down a big money move to France to stay in England and fight for his place in the national team.

That’s all the more commendable after he was cut from the England squad which hosted the World Cup last summer, but embarrassingly failed to make it out of their group.

This latest international setback must have Cipriani thinking about his future – and some believe its time to forget about his England aspirations and go for the money at Toulon.

Here, we’ve rounded up the Twitter reaction to Cipriani’s surprise omission:
