Rebels in the picture over Cipriani

THE Melbourne Rebels took their squad photo yesterday as the build-up begins to the start of the Super 15 season and one player conspicuous by his absence was mercurial miscreant Danny Cipriani.

England's answer to Gavin Henson is undoubtedly talented but his high-profile status as a wayward genius is based on one, admittedly superb, performance against an under-par Ireland in Eddie O'Sullivan's last game in charge in 2008. Since then, Cipriani has flattered to deceive and the Rebels took a big leap of faith by bringing the 22-year-old on board -- something they appear to be quickly realising.
