Diamond wants Cipriani the superstar

Sale Sharks Chief Executive Steve Diamond says that he has signed Danny Cipriani because he believes he could be English rugby unions next superstar.

Cipriani has signed a three-year deal with Sale and will return to the English Premiership next season after a second year in Australia with Melbourne Rebels.

Diamond says the fly-half has come back to his native country because he wants to play for the national side again and establish himself as a world class player.
