Danny Cipriani sets up Nev Edwards with another great bit of attacking play

Danny Cipriani sets up Nev Edwards with another great bit of attacking play

Danny Cipriani helped Sale Sharks to a convincing 38-5 bonus point victory over Newport Gwent Dragons last night, earning qualification for the European Challenge Cup last eight, and a home quarter-final as Pool Two winners. 

The 28-year-old’s excellent run in the second half gave old mate Nev Edwards a try in the corner, further stretching their lead.

Cipriani was left out of Eddie Jones’ England squad for the Six Nations, so this recent showing – that included a flawless kicking display of 11 points – will no doubt add fuel to the fire for those who would love to see such a dynamic number ten playing for their country.

When asked about his form after the match, Sale boss Steve Diamond said:

“He was outstanding, wasn’t he? I think the England coach has picked his team probably a fortnight early with the way Cipriani’s in form.

“All he’s got to do is carry on doing that and he’ll get some recognition, no doubt.”

We reported on the Cipriani-Edwards history of friendship last month, so it’s nice to see them linking up once again, and doing so when it matters in Europe.
