Rat

With the Super-Duper 15 season now over for all but the finalists, what's a wayward and somewhat underused English fly half to do?

In the case of Daniel Jerome Cipriani the answer is to to sign up to play Shute Shield rugby in Sydney (trying saying that after a few drinks) for the Warringah Rats.

Cipriani made his Rats debut this week in the local derby against high flying Manly, ending up on the wrong side of a 32-15 scoreline with his Rats still firmly rooted to the bottom of the table (a position he will be entirely familiar with following his season with the Rebels).

If I was a mean-spirited sort of chap I would make some comment along the lines of how the mighty have fallen. There is, however, something almost noble in the way that Danny-boy appears to be embracing a return to the grassroots of the game (at least until the next fall out with management).

You never know, he might actually start enjoying the game again.
