RugbyU: Cipriani gets Healey backing for New Zealand

Austin Healey has called on England to end the Test exile of Danny Cipriani after the fly-half was named the Premiership's player of the month for March. Cipriani's form has helped guide unheralded Sale to the brink of the play-off and led to calls he be included for England's tour of New Zealand in June. The 26-year-old was once the rising star of English rugby but won the last of his seven caps back in 2008, a combination of injuries and concerns about his 'celebrity' lifestyle off the pitch seeing him sidelined.

RugbyU: Cipriani stars as Sale sink Irish

Danny Cipriani was on top form as Sale Sharks cruised to a 15-3 win over London Irish in the English Premiership on Friday. Out of favour with England, Cipriani created the opening try and booted a conversion and a penalty in difficult conditions. Cipriani's heroics gave Sale their fifth league win of the season and condemned the Exiles to their eighth defeat of the campaign. With the wind at their backs, Sale took a 12-0 advantage into the interval thanks to tries from Tom Brady and Dave Seymour.
