Danny Cipriani at the 6 Nations?

I am not going to say nothing new about Danny Cipriani. Recently, a glimpse to what the 2008 would bring on Planet-Rugby predicted him to be the most notorious thing to happen in Engand's rugby during this year.

Just three days earlier I watched the London Wasps vs Bath game, featuring him as the real star of the match. Just 30 seconds would have passed before the umpire conceded a penalty to the Wasps on their own field. Danny would take the ball and kick to goal and before I could sit down the score was 3-0. London Wasps never looked back.

From that moment on, he would be scoring from every part of the field, penalties and conversions until the very last moment that he would miss a conversion. Not bad.

He's got what is today needed for a first five eighths: phisically talented, fast and superb kicking skills. And he is just 20.

Why now? Will he be included in the 32 named by England's coach this week to represent England in the 6 nations? Will Jonny Wilkinson be the monster that took his side to triumph last Sunday just by kicking penalties and drop goals or will he start any game on the bench?

(Oh! how much we do miss Super 14 games!!!!!!)
