Danny Cipriani has been overlooked for England’s autumn series squad to put a significant dent in his hopes of being involved in the 2019 World Cup
Cipriani has made a strong start to the season at Gloucester and was named Gallagher Premiership player of the month for September, yet is missing from the 36-man group named for Tests against South Africa, New Zealand, Japan and Australia.
The 30-year-old playmaker started England’s most recent game against South Africa in June and set-up the pivotal try for Jonny May but having been watched by Eddie Jones four times this season, he has been left out.
Owen Farrell and George Ford are present as the recognised fly-halves, although Henry Slade and Alex Lozowski provide cover in the position.
For the first time in Jones’ reign, Dylan Hartley must share the leadership duties with Owen Farrell after the pair were named co-captains.
