How rugby instills the work ethic.

Has Danny Cipriani ever actually done anything on a rugby pitch? He's famous for getting dropped from the England squad before he made his international debut because he was at a nightclub at midnight two days before a match, and now b/c he's reportedly knobing Kelly Brook. Oh, and according to Wiki he once dated a Cheeky Girl. With that track record I'm not surprised Josh Lewsey clocked him.


Danny Cipriani now in danger of being kicked off the team for a second time after a drink-driving-crash incident:



A risky bet for people who also pick Paul Gascoigne or Charlie Sheen.
