Fly-half Danny Cipriani has not been included in Gloucester's squad for their pre-season friendly against Pro14 side Ulster on Saturday.

The 30-year-old was fined on Thursday after pleading guilty to common assault and resisting arrest after an incident in a Jersey nightclub the previous day.

Cipriani was also ordered to pay £250 compensation to a woman police officer.

The England international was not named in Gloucester's 31-man squad for their trip to the Kingspan Stadium.

Cipriani, who joined Gloucester from Wasps this summer, later tweeted he was "truly sorry... most importantly [to] the police" and was "mortified" by his actions.

The Premiership side kick off their 2018-19 league campaign at home against Northampton on Saturday, 1 September.
