Danny Cipriani will probably be on the England World Cup training squad next month after learning that the Barbarians have no choice for Sunday’s game in Twickenham. Sports fanatics from all over the world can now grab Rugby World Cup Tickets online to enjoy the most exciting rugby matches.
It is also understood that his hopes of being included in the World Cup final squad may depend on Eddie Jones playing the game by selecting only two scrum half. Number 9 was also mentioned, with the possibility that Cipriani will doubling up in an emergency.
Cipriani was theoretically available to play for the Barbarians against the England XV this weekend. After Gloucester could not make it to the Premiership final on Saturday.
Jones will name a final training team in early July, once all players play this weekend after the mandatory five-week rest period. The first group of players – those clubs not involved in the playoffs, will meet in mid-June.
“He was not available,” Lam said.” I predict those who were not available and that’s not guaranteed but you expect to see them in their World Cup teams.
“He was unavailable because some players want to play but they have to be approved by the unions or clubs Once I’ve spoken to the player and he really wants him to sign, some players have not been teams from the World Cup.”
While Jones should choose two No. 10 specialists, Owen Farrell and George Ford when he reduces his training squad to the final 31 for Japan. It is thought that he also plans to select only two half-scrum-half whole and sought emergency coverage as a third.
Ford was tested as No. 9 in training during the Six Nations Tournament and it is believed that the idea of Cipriani potentially fulfilling this role was also explored. It may seem far-fetched, with Cipriani having little experience in the semifinal. But using it as an option in both positions could make his mercurial talents available to Jones in Japan without compromising the space available in his team.
Jones made a similar call in 2015 when he only selected two scrum-halfs in his team in Japan with Kosei Ono, the half-volley, at the shelter. In addition, the fact that he has regularly used Nathan Hughes in second place at Six Nations and has often designated Henry Slade as a back cover shows Jones’ willingness to be more versatile on his team.
Jones made his first test start at Jones last year, but was forgotten by England despite a breathtaking season for Gloucester. He has been named the Rugby Players’ Association and the Premiership Player of the Year.
