England Rugby star Danny Cipriani's trial for drink-driving will continue after a judge dismissed a bid to have the case thrown out.

The 28-year-old Sale Sharks player crashed his black Mercedes into a taxi in June last year.

He is accused of being so drunk his eyes were "glazed", he slurred his words and could not stand straight after the crash.

Jurors heard that a breathalyser test showed Cipriani had 67 micrograms of alcohol per 100ml of breath - nearly twice the drink-drive limit in England and Wales of 35 micrograms.

The defence said there was not "sufficient" evidence the breathalyser test in the police station was working properly but Senior District Judge Howard Riddle ruled that Cipriani has a case to answer.

Everton defender Ramiro Funes Mori has apologised for his foul on Divock Origi on Wednesday night.

The challenge resulted in the centre-back being dismissed by referee Bobby Madley and Origi having to be stretchered off.

I very much regret what happened yesterday. It was never my intention to harm a rival nor my colleagues (by) leaving the field.

And regarding Divock Origi, I fervently hope it's nothing serious and know that was never my intention to hurt (him). I ask my apologies (sic) for what happened.

– Ramiro Funes Mori
