Feelgood factor for reborn Danny Cipriani

BACK IN THE FOLD: Danny Cipriani

AFTER MAKING his first England appearance since Twickenham in 2008 last Saturday, Danny Cipriani has signed a new contract at Sale Sharks.

The England fly-half has ended recent speculation by signing a new two year contract with his current club. The Former Wasps and Melbourne no.10 was linked with a move abroad to French side Toulon which would have dented his chances of playing for the national side again.

"One of the main reasons I signed the was that we've got a tight squad and it embraces new talent," said Cipriani. "We've got some great young talent at the club with players like Mike Haley, Will Addison, Tommy Taylor, Ross Harrison and Josh Beaumont all having really come to the fore over the past year or so.

"It's also an environment that makes you feel very welcome so I'm really thrilled about signing the new deal and looking forward to the future."

Cipriani joined the Sharks on a three-year deal in 2012, and has looked the part in recent months and scored a try in England's 47-17 win over Italy in the Six Nations last weekend.
