Danny Cipriani signs for Gloucester Rugby

After much speculation, Gloucester Rugby has finally confirmed that Danny Cipriani will join the team at Kingsholm this summer.

The rumours have finally been confirmed as true; 30-year-old Danny Cipriani will join Gloucester Rugby for the 2018/19 season.

The fly-half has been capped 14 times for England and joins Gloucester with a fantastic record, having played for Wasps, Melbourne Rebels, and Sale Sharks.


Gloucester’s director of rugby David Humphreys says he’s thrilled at the appointment: ‘We’re absolutely delighted that Danny has signed for Gloucester Rugby. As one of the most influential and talented fly halves in the Premiership over the past decade, the chance to sign him was simply too good an opportunity to turn down.

‘He’s probably in the best form of his career, reflected in his selection in the England squad to tour South Africa, and his signing is a significant one for the Club.

‘Danny is very excited by the challenge of joining Gloucester and his arrival will strengthen our current options at no 10 and will complement the rest of the squad that we are still assembling for next season.’


Cipriani, who is currently still playing for Wasps said he was looking forward to moving to Kingsholm: ‘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.

‘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.’
