Guess Who’s Just Been Named Gallagher Premiership Player Of The Month?
Gloucester Rugby playmaker Danny Cipriani was today named Gallagher Premiership Rugby Player of the Month for September 2018. Cipriani has been in stellar form for Gloucester as they picked up two wins in their first four matches to establish themselves in the top six.
Cipriani made the move to Gloucester over the summer from Wasps, turning down a number of lucrative offers abroad in order to continue playing for England. But despite his fine form – was left out of England’s recent training camp in Bristol.
Gloucester Head Coach, Johan Ackermann said on Cipriani winning the award:
“Credit to Danny, when he joined us there was a lot of pressure on him from changing clubs and everything, but he has slotted in really well both on the field and off the field.
“On the field it was quite evident that we could see his skill from the first training session. He has got a big belief in his ability in how we can play and he is not shy to try things. I think that suits us, we want to give players that freedom and he has slotted in really well on that.
“It fits quite well because we want our teams to be dominant, we want our teams to be involved between us and the players that want a lot of interaction.”
No doubt this will add further fuel to the fire in terms of the Cipriani for England calls. Your move Eddie.
