Cipriani to tour NZ

Ap
Wednesday, May 28, 2014

LONDON - Danny Cipriani has completed his transformation from England outcast to potential Test starter by earning a first international call-up in six years for the tour of New Zealand.

Back from the international wilderness after enjoying his best season in many years, the 26-year-old fly-half was selected along with seven uncapped players in an initial 30-man squad named by England coach Stuart Lancaster.

Cipriani will compete with Freddie Burns, the only other No.10 in the squad, to start the first Test in Auckland on June 7.

He has come up to speed, got to know the plays and built relationships with the players.

Cipriani was widely touted as the heir to England great Jonny Wilkinson after a brilliant Test debut against Ireland in the Six Nations in 2008.
