Cipriani 'feeling fine' after head clash in Sale defeat

Danny Cipriani says he is "feeling fine" and has thanked fans for their concern following his sickening head clash in Wasps' defeat to Sale Sharks on Friday.

The 30-year-old appeared to be knocked unconscious at the AJ Bell Stadium when, in the closing moments of the match, team-mate Dan Robson challenged Faf de Klerk and caused the Sale scrum-half to collide with Cipriani.

The former Sharks fly-half was treated for several minutes on the pitch before being carried off on a stretcher, after which the hosts snatched victory through a last-second Marland Yarde try.

Writing via his official Twitter account, Cipriani said: "I'm feeling fine. Thank you for the messages. I remember most of the game. Well done to Sale. Appreciate the concern."

Sale's win moved them four points back of third-place Wasps in the Premiership.
