Transfer Deadline Day Danny Cipriani wants similar system in rugby


As football’s window draws to a close with transfer deadline day across Europe, Wasps fly-half Danny Cipriani believes a similar concept needs to be introduced in rugby.

This season has seen the likes of Dan Biggar, Rhys Webb and David Strettle all announce moves away from their clubs mid-season. However, Cipriani believes a set period culminating in a deadline day would help prevent disruption to teams.

“I think it [a transfer deadline day] should happen really,” Cipriani told ESPN. “Just because you get people saying they are leaving in January, or even sooner.

“Then they are there for six months, but what is their motivation? Obviously they are still motivated, they still want to play but it is a strange position to be in, to know you are not going to be there.

“I think it would make it a bit more exciting for people to see It and maybe a bit more professional in that way.”

And Cipriani, who is a keen supporter of the NFL and NBA, sees the advantages of employing a draft system which could help to level the playing field.

“Draft system — yes, it’s great to watch,” Cipriani said. “It swings massively and it did for a while stop one team from winning but obviously the New England Patriots are just unbelievably strong right now. Well, they have been for a long time now. It is great to watch the draft system.”
