In Australia yesterday, Danny Cipriani started for the Melbourne Rebels in their first game, against Tonga in a warm-up for the Super 15.

Cipriani was seen to apply ice to his knee after leaving the field.

Jonny Wilkinson, an even-money shot to return to England's starting line-up when the All Blacks visit Twickenham in a little over five weeks' time, must be doing something right if the man once revered by the French as the "anti-Wilkinson" rates him the best outside-half around. Frédéric Michalak, who began his Test career playing the flawed genius to Wilkinson's flawless robot, believes his old rival is on the verge of delivering something special for his country this autumn.
