Danny Cipriani Announces He Is Leaving Wasps
On the way out.
Wasps playmaker Danny Cipriani has announced that he will leave the Premiership side at the end of the current season.
The former Sales Sharks and Melbourne Rebels star is in his second spell with the Coventry-based outfit. And has long been linked with a move away at the end of this campaign.
Cipriani is believed to be frustrated with Eddie Jones’ failure to pick him for England among other things.
Wasps have also recently announced that All Blacks ten Lima Sopoaga will be joining them ahead of next season, signalling the end for Cipriani. His new club is yet to be confirmed.
Wasps Director of rugby Dai Young said:
“Danny is moving on at the end of the year and we wish him well.
“We would also like to thank him for all his efforts in a Wasps shirt.
“As he says, now this decision has been made public we can all concentrate on the really important three-and-a-half months of rugby which lies ahead.
“This begins for Danny, the rest of the squad and staff at the Ricoh on Sunday, where our focus is fully on the challenge presented by Exeter.”
Danny Cipriani said:
“I will be sad to leave Wasps, but my job is far from finished and I can promise the fans my absolute all until the end of the season as we tackle the mission ahead of us.
“I will now take some time to decide my next move.”
