The former London Wasps pivot made his England debut at 20 against Wales gaining seven caps but he has since been on a six-year hiatus from national duty after problems with form, fitness and off-the-field issues. After spending time on the books at QPR, Cipriani went to the prestigious Whitgift Academy where his talent was spotted and he made his debut for London Wasps at 18. At 24, he left for Super Rugby where he played at 10 for the Melbourne Rebels for 18 months. Cipriani moved back to the UK in 2012 joining Sale Sharks on a three year deal. The 28-year-old will return to Wasps at the start of the 2016-17 season.
