Sir Clive Woodward has said that Danny Cipriani is the greatest talent he has ever seen who failed to live up to his full potential.

Sir Clive Woodward has said that Danny Cipriani is the greatest talent he has ever seen who failed to live up to his full potential.

During his stint as Head Coach, England rose from sixth to first in the world, capturing every title available to an England team.

Woodward coached some of rugby’s all-time greats with England and the Lions, but places the contentious number 10 above most.

The fly-half had a chance to break into the England first team under Martin Johnson in the late naughties but Cipriani explained he struggled to bridge the gap between Premiership and International rugby.

“On talent and skill, Cipriani should have been in the team the last ten years,” said Woodward. “He was the person to come in and take over from [Jonny] Wilkinson, he was the man ready to go.

“He is the only English number 10 of the past 20 years who, if I’d been coach and he had been up for selection at the same time as Jonny, could have caused big selection headaches,

“His skill-set was so complete. He posed an attacking threat with ball in hand and has a superb kicking game and world-class distribution.
