Danny Cipriani🤝 to Join Gloucester🏉 From Wasps

  |   Rugby

Gloucester have confirmed Danny Cipriani will join them from Wasps next season.

The 30-year-old's contract with Wasps expires after the current campaign and they have already announced the signing of his replacement, New Zealand fly-half Lima Sopoaga.

Cipriani has been recalled by England after a three-year absence for this summer's tour to South Africa. It is the first time he has been selected by Eddie Jones.

He had to remain in the Aviva Premiership to remain eligible for England ahead of the 2019 World Cup in Japan and he is excited to be joining Gloucester.

"I've always enjoyed playing at Kingsholm and am excited at the prospect of spending the next few years in Cherry and White and playing in front of the Shed," Cipriani said.

"Having spoken in depth with David Humphreys and Johan Ackermann, the future they have planned for the club is enticing and one that I very much want to be part of. It's the most exciting move of my career to date.

"I've still some important rugby to play for Wasps in the meantime and, when the time comes, it's probably going to be an emotional farewell."

Cipriani's final appearance for Wasps will come in either this Saturday's Aviva Premiership semi-final against Saracens, or, if they progress, the final against Exeter or Newcastle on May 26.
