Midweek Madness - Danny Cipriani F-Bomb Interview

Midweek Madness - Danny Cipriani F-Bomb Interview

In his live BBC television interview with Sonja McLaughlan after England's Six Nations victory over Ireland recently, young flyhalf prodigy Danny Cipriani hit the headlines for the wrong reasons.

After kicking seven out of seven on his first start for England, Cippers couldn't help himself and slipped up by stating that it was the f****** one to eight who deserved the man of the match.

Immediately afterwards the 20 year old Wasps flyhalf realised his mistake, with his comment about hardly believing he just swore on live TV. He was soon pushed away though and the interview with him was over.

An hour later Danny said: "Can I apologise for swearing on national television? I was too excited after the interview and I am very sorry for using the F-word."

Considering he's not even old enough to drink in some countries, we'll forgive him for this one.

I just love his expression when he realises what he's said :PAbout drinking age, in sweden it's 18 but to buy anything stronger than 3%(?) you'll have to be 20 or 21. But there's always denmark or germany ;)

He said in an interview later that all he thought was "What is my mum going say?".

Just an observation; Its ok for players to drop the 'F' bomb on the field everytime they do something crap. If the refs mike doesn't pick it up then you dont have to be a skilled lip reader. At least three or four times a match - best we ignore those(unless your Brian Moore). Although saying into a BBC camera is much funnier

Thats the difference between Wilko and Cips. They are both great players - wat ever u say about jonny - but jonny lives on the less reckless side of life.

He's fine. Why is the word fuck such a bad work? They can say anything on american telivision as bitch, ass and I bet you tits come next. Fuck isn't far off either. It's just a word with a label of what people said it should be.
