Ruck and Maul: Cipriani has full backing of the Rebels but there may be a stand-off

When Danny Cipriani's move to Australia was confirmed on Friday morning, Wasps' executive chairman Mark Rigby was not so much up a gumtree as climbing a mountain, on the French leg of fellow club director (and fellow former Wasps back-rower) Lawrence Dallaglio's Cycle Slam. With a target of raising £1m for Sport Relief and other charities, the pair were pedalling north to Provence while the departing Cipriani was tying up his long trip south to join Melbourne Rebels at the end of the season. "Rod Macqueen and his coaching staff are intending to play Cipriani at full-back, the position he currently fills at London Wasps," said the Rebels' media handout. That'll be the Cipriani selected at fly-half today against Saracens and for his last four club matches against Sale, Racing Métro, Roma and Leicester. Communication problems already, Cips?
