What with the Ben Stokes case, and the Danny Cipriani arrest, doesn’t everyone just wish our cricket and rugby players could follow the example of the England football team?

The biggest mindblock about the @gloucesterrugby fly half @DannyCipriani87 (if found guilty)? It was in a club….in Jersey….on a Tuesday night?. I’ve had some tragic nights out but this takes the biscuit. Thoughts @RugbyGlos? #rugby #DannyCipriani #Glawsfamily #rugbyunited

However, Cipriani’s present team Gloucester’s CEO Stephen Vaughan has condemned the planning of the RFU charge. Vaughan asserted the charge came regardless of “personal assurances” that none would be brought before Gloucester had settled their own particular discourses.

He also said:
We are surprised and extremely disappointed to have recently received notification of disciplinary action. We do not agree with the RFU’s decision to embark upon a disciplinary process before we have concluded our own internal discussions.
Cipriani’s disciplinary hearing will happen one week from now. The date, time and individuals from the autonomous RFU board are yet to be finalised.

Two Premiership rugby clubs have been in Jersey this week. A member of Harlequins’ backroom staff fell out of a hotel window in the early hours of Sunday morning, now Gloucester’s Danny Cipriani has been charged with assault. Some pre-season.

Danny Cipriani nearly fooled me as “truly sorry” for police assault. Then he quoted magistrates ‘it was only a minor incident’. And all respect was gone. Just take responsibility. You’re supposed to be a role model. https://t.co/0jSc2uXkPJ pic.twitter.com/GbcNL0ADvp
