Having a look at Danny Cipriani's Instagram story and it shows Alex Corbisiero wearing Wasps training kit speaking to Christian Wade. Is he working with us? Going to play for us? Or just doing a segment for US broadcaster NBC?
I'd love to see him fit and playing in our front row.
I think he's finally accepted that his knees have had it, pity at such a young age, but he's making a good job of being the face of Prem rugby in the states. Getting regularly good ratings and introducing far more people to how great the standard in Englands' league is....
Top guy, and he's doing a lot of sports commentary and coverage.
As a player, he was an absolute beast. I always feel for any player that had to retire through injury. I think English rugby has missed him as much as he has missed it
About 6 months ago he was talking about the Broadcasting job being a part of his Sabbatical but looking to return possibly to the Premiership. Then he was talking about maybe featuring for one of the American clubs now it sounds like he's purely focused on the broadcasting.
Its a great fit for him as he's a bit of a showman plus he has ticked many of the boxes in terms of success including successful Lions tour, beating the All Blacks, etc plus he's a bit American and they apparently treat him as their own. Wouldn't be surprised if he's on very good money and he's kind of in at the ground floor of American club rugby and the growing interest in terms of sports coverage and Internationals being played there.
I wish him all the success but feel that we might have lost an outstanding scrum coach to the broadcasting industry.
