Time To Get On With It

Danny Cipriani has now sat through three official hearings into his admitted misconduct in Jersey and is now able to take to the pitch tonight in the Cherry and White shirt, which we trust he will wear with pride and due respect.

The court has imposed its sentence, the club has supported the player, but taken appropriate action similar to that of the court, and last night the RFU had its opportunity to get involved.

The verdict at the Holiday Inn at Bristol was that "Mr Cipriani is a role model and by committing an act of common assault and by resisting arrest, the panel find his actions are prejudicial to the interests of the game.

"The panel took in to account the sanction imposed upon Mr Cipriani by the court and the sanction imposed by Gloucester Rugby and when considering the totality of both, do not impose any further sanction."

So let's move on. Cipriani is in tonight's team which will face a tough task at the hands of a strong Welsh outfit. Kick off 7.45 and let's not forget we will also see Matt Banahan in action. Should be more than interesting.

Glaws: 15 Jason Woodward, 14. Matt Banahan, 13. Henry Trinder, 12. Billy Twelvetrees, 11. Ollie Thorley, 10. Danny Cipriani, 9. Willi Heinz (cvaptain), 1. Josh Hohneck, 2. James Hanson, 3. Fraser Balmain; 4. Ed Slater, 5. Mariano Galarza; 6. Ruan Ackermann, 7. Lewis Ludlow, 8. Ben Morgan.

Bench: Franco Marais, Alex Seville,  Ciaran Knight, Gerbrandt Grobler, Jake Polledri, Ben Vellacott, Lloyd Evans, Henry Purdy, Todd Gleave, Freddie Clarke, Will Safe, Gareth Evans, Callum Braley, Owen Williams, Mark Atkinson, Charlie Sharples, Tom Hudson.

Dragons will, of course, have Richard Hibbard in their ranks. Wonder if he;s had his haitr cut?

Dragons: Jordan Williams, Dafydd Howells, Tyler Morgan, Jack Dixon, Hallam Amos, Josh Lewis, Rhodri Williams; Ryan Bevington, Richard Hibbard, Leon Brown, Brandon Nansen, Cory Hill (captain), Huw Taylor, Aaron Wainwright, Lewis Evans
