SPECTATORS at a recent Tottenham pre-season football friendly against Malaga must have thought they were seeing things.
For the team’s left-back player turned out to be none other than England rugby ace Danny Cipriani!
Swapping his egg-shaped ball for a round one, Cipriani was on trial with the Premiership team and played a full 90 minutes with them on a boot-camp trip to Spain.
The all-rounder, who had trials with QPR and Reading FC as a teenager, is said to be interested in switching to football even though he is preparing to move to Aussie rugby club Melbourne Rebels in October.
The star is looking to make a fresh start after his recent split from British bombshell Kelly Brook.
