Men's Rugby Union Cipriani earns first England start in a decade

DANNY CIPRIANI will make his first England start for a decade after being selected at fly-half for Saturday’s third and final Test against South Africa.

Cipriani has ousted George Ford after playing 13 minutes as a second-half replacement for his rival in the series-conceding 23-12 defeat in Bloemfontein last weekend.

The tour to South Africa is his first appearance in an England squad under Eddie Jones and the playmaker has impressed enough to be elevated into the starting XV.
