England career over I would say, regardless of what happens tomorrow. Eddie won’t have it.

Never been a fan but I actually thought he was on the way back to being a grown up and then ……………………..

A talent wasted.

He does have a gift for getting into trouble straight after being given another chance doesn't he

Alastair Eykyn has tweeted that charges are said to include common assault, larceny, assault on police, resisting arrest and being disorderly on licensed premises.

If there is any truth in that it’s goodbye to England and could be looking at a spell as a guest of her majesty

I actually find it all quite sad.

He's a fantastic talent but he just can't seem to resist pushing the self-destruct button.

To me it seems there's a pretty clear common denominator in all his off-field woes. I'm definitely making excuses for him but I really think the guy might need some help (if he's not already).

Gloucester must be fuming.

That is a shame. I was looking forward to Ford spending more time at Tigers this year and building some continunity with Toomua, Eastmond,Tuilagi et al.....on the basis he would not be needed as back up FH for England with OF in the squad.

Also a shame for Cipriani.....others have said it all.

Feels a bit like groundhog day,

Manu has knee surgery, Cippers has night club related incident.

Who’s next??? Dylan? Ashton? Denny? Think Gav is still going too, he must be craving one last headline.

Some times my mind boggles...
Why do top sports persons hit the self destruct button in such a manner and DC.
Just got back on England radar, appeared to have matured, started to prove the knocker wrong and whammy...

Good bye career. hello criminal record....unless...he has same legal team as some recent sports person of England stature..

Looks like the assaulting an officer charge was dropped.
"England rugby international Danny Cipriani has been fined £2,000 after an assault in a Jersey nightclub.

The Gloucester player pleaded guilty to common assault and resisting arrest and was ordered to pay £250 compensation to a woman police officer.

Three other charges - assault on police, larceny and being disorderly on licensed premises - were dropped."
