Cipriani in more trouble in Melbourne

6:36 am on 4 May 2011

The seemingly incorrigible former England rugby first five Danny Cipriani has been stood down from the Melbourne Rebels match this weekend against the Queensland Reds after another late night out.

23 year old Cipriani and his teammate Richard Kingi were both punished for defying a team directive to abstain from staying out late after their game last Saturday night.

Cipriani was fined in March for helping himself to a bottle of vodka from the bar of a Melbourne nightclub.

His latest indiscretion won't help his bid to make the England squad for this year's World Cup.
