I'm referring of course to Danny Cipriani who is heavily rumoured to be planning to take his scrum cap and his model girlfriend Down Under to hook up with the Melbourne Rebels next season, having (maybe rightly) concluded that there was no future for him with Johnson's England.
Asked whether Cipriani could play for Melbourne and stay in the England squad Johnno was typically forthright: "No of course it's not...it is impossible for him to play for England in the Six Nations if he is over there. I am sure he understands that."
Who knows how accurate the rumours are? Personally I think it'd be a huge cop out by Cipriani. Stay and prove the England management wrong or run away and prove that Johnson's suspicions as to his character are spot on?
Bottom line is that if he was playing well enough he'd be closer to a return for England. Fact is he isn't, and 2nd choice fullback for the Saxons is about his level right now.
