Cipriani to Conquer America?

Another day, another twist in the underwhelming sporting career of everyone's love-to-hate-him fly-half, Danny Celebriani Cipriani.

Today, reported that "rugby ace" Cipriani is keen to try his luck in Major League Soccer after training with MLS side Colorado Rapids.

Move aside David Beckham and Thierry Henry, the 22-year-old former Wasps stand-off has apparently been dazzling the yanks with his footballing skills following a brief stint training with Championship side Queens Park Rangers this summer.

Rapids communication manager, Jason Gilham, believes Cipriani could be serious about switching to the round ball on a more permanent basis.

"He is keen to explore opportunities in soccer in general and with the Rapids in particular," Gilham told The Times.

"I think he is looking at the possibility [of securing a contract with the franchise]. It is something that is being looked at from both sides."

However, Cipriani has signed with new Super 15 outfit the Melbourne Rebels for next season, and coach Rod Maqueen still expects the overly-hyped 10 to move to Australia.
"He is absolutely on board," Macqueen said. "We have seen no evidence to say that he is not coming. We are expecting him in about three weeks."

Well good luck with that.  The Cipriani media circus rumbles on...  Oh and is he still dating Alexandra Burke?  Quite frankly, who cares?
