Cipriani back in Melbourne Rebels team
Wednesday 08 June 2011
Troubled flyhalf Danny Cipriani will return to Melbourne's starting XV for the first time in more than a month when the Rebels travel to Super 15 rivals the ACT Brumbies on Friday.
The former England No. 10 hasn't played since April after being suspended for breaching the team's code of conduct and then due to a contractual stand off with the Rebels.
Cipriani has missed a match against the league-leading Queensland Reds, a two-game trip to South Africa and last weekend's heavy loss at home to the Cape Town-based Stormers.
Cipriani's return to flyhalf pushes Julian Huxley back into the centers for the match against the Brumbies.
The Rebels are last in the Australian conference standings and next-to-last in the overall Super 15 table in their debut in the southern hemisphere's premier provincial competition.
