Rugby-Cipriani agrees Gloucester move

May 15 (Reuters) - Flyhalf Danny Cipriani says he is making the most exciting move of his career after agreeing to join Gloucester from Premiership rivals Wasps for next season.

The 30-year-old has played a key role in Wasps’ qualification for the Premiership semi-finals and his form has led to a recall to the England squad after a three-year absence.

Cipriani will look to stake a claim for a place in England’s 2019 World Cup squad on next month’s tour of South Africa.

"Having spoken in depth with (Gloucester director of rugby) David Humphreys and (head coach) Johan Ackermann, the future they have planned for the club is enticing and one that I very much want to be part of," Cipriani told Gloucester's website

“It’s the most exciting move of my career to date.”

Cipriani, who has won 14 caps for England, will hope to end his time at Wasps on a high by helping them reach the Premiership final. They face Saracens in Saturday’s semis. (Reporting by Aditi Prakash in Bengaluru; Editing by Peter Rutherford )
