@ meneer - trolling much?

meneer please don't tar everyone with the same brush. There are loads of prem players that would be very good in super rugby. I could quite easily spout off any number of southern hem players that have struggled in the prem. In fact Northamptons relegation the then division one was largely down to the fact that they had filled the side with so called foreign 'superstars'.

What a complete let down. He has disgraced himself at the Rebels on a number of occasions and lacks the physical and mental toughness to make it at the highest level. I saw him play club rugby for Warringah in Sydney in July last year and he was awful. Also, someone sent me a clip of him showing off doing a stupid dance after he scored a try a few weeks back for the Rebels.... Given his poor behavior and from since he arrived in Melbourne (his own team mates voted that he shouldn't tour SA with the Rebels last year).....it made me cringe. He knew Beale was about to take his spot so has fled, rather than putting up a fight....softer than soft and good riddance

I guess he's got one last chance to prove himself - let's hope he does (because if he can start to actually show a bit of his talent on the field it does give England some options.
And I don't understand where the Henson references come from? Has Cipriani ever been thrown out of a club? Been drunk on a plane at 7am? Been kicked out of more than one club? Nope!
Henson is out there all on his own as an absolute idiot - Cipriani still has some way to go.

When the Aussies start saying his defense is so bad it overshadows his attack then you know he's never going to cut it at the top.
I think he'd have been better off signing for a 1st divison club or doing a Shane Geraughty taking the cash in France. He's just not good enough.

I've watched this guy since he was a sprog at Wasps, fabulous talent till (a) He got injured and was brought back to soon by MJ and then dropped (b) Had Kelly Brook as his squeeze and started believing his own publicity.
Cipriani is the type of person that only learns by a painful experience i.e. gobbing off at Josh Lewesey who then gave him a good smack in the face, a few more might not go amis
Sale are his last chance or else he will wind up like Henson

Every time I see any reference to Danny C I can't help but remember PDivvy continually referring to him as "Capriati" during a press conference with the English Press just before the Boks destroyed England at Twickenham thanks to a Capriati howler. He's clearly got talent but pathetic attitude. The RFU should send him to work on a Free State farm for a year and make him play for the local club. They'll snotklap the attitude out of him within a month but he'll return as a better player.

One again he shows his questionable level of commitment, wonder how long he'll last at Sale. He seems to be a bit of a Henson, just with less skill, any guesses how long it'll be before he's dating some X-Factor reject?

England legend...good luck to any side who has this loser in it.

This guy is an idiot, proof anyway that super rugby - even for the lowly Melbourne Rebels is too hostile a place for many a premiership player. Poor defence, well says it all really.

Let the assumptions commence!
