Cipriani released from hospital and goes home

Wasps fly-half Danny Cipriani has been released from hospital after ankle surgery on the horrific injury that will sideline him for at least six months.

The England fly-half is now at home, with Wasps describing his condition as “comfortable.”

Cipriani was operated on by ankle specialist James Calder just hours after he suffered a fracture dislocation of his right ankle during Wasps’ Premiership play-off semi-final victory over Bath on Sunday.

Cipriani, who will miss the Premiership final against Leicester and England’s two-Test New Zealand tour next month, faces a lengthy rehabilitation as he tries to return to action before the end of the year.

But Wasps insisted the operation went “exceptionally well,” and Cipriani’s ankle will now remain elevated for a two-week period as part of the healing process.

Cipriani’s Wasps’ colleague Tom Voyce was due to have surgery on Wednesday to repair the dislocated left shoulder he suffered against Bath.

Former England wing Voyce’s recovery programme is expected to last three months but he should be fit for the start of next season.
