Cipriani official 2019 highlight reel proves he MUST play for England

After watching this highlight reel of Danny Cipriani, we had to say it. He NEEDS to play for England. Just look at how effective he is, the chances he creates.

If Eddie doesn’t pick him for England he should be ashamed of himself. Cipriani has done so many amazing things this season for Gloucester and as we all know, he has had a lot of calls for him to play for the national team.

This video was released by the official Prem Rugby YouTube channel so this really shows how Cipriani is on everyone’s mind.
