Adam Ashley-Cooper has responded to Danny Cipriani’s claim that not a single Australian would be good enough for England’s team by mocking the fly-half’s vanity.

Cipriani invited attention on to Stuart Lancaster’s men on the eve of their critical showdown with the Wallabies, a match that will determine whether the hosts survive in their own World Cup.

“Not one Australian would get into that England team right now,” said Cipriani, who was part of Lancaster’s training squad for the tournament before being jettisoned at the final round of cuts.

Ashley-Cooper, who starts on the right wing at Twickenham, has reacted by declaring Cipriani would not be considered by the Wallabies.

“It’s just nice that Danny is talking about someone other than himself,” Ashley-Cooper told Press Association Sport.

“He’s a good bloke and I enjoy his selfies a lot. He can say what he likes, he wouldn’t ever be a part of our team.”
