England head coach Eddie Jones is adamant that the door remains open for Danny Cipriani despite his latest off-field misdemeanour.

The Gloucester fly-half was fined £2,000 after admitting charges of common assault and resisting arrest during his club's pre-season trip to Jersey, and was later charged with "conduct prejudicial to the interests of the game" by the Rugby Football Union.

However, asked if the player, who made his first England start for a decade in South Africa this summer, still has a future at international level, Jones said: "We never close the door on anyone.

"Everyone makes mistakes. He was very contrite afterwards, realised he's done the wrong thing and we move on from that now.

"I think it's been dealt with. He was punished by his club, punished by whatever happened with the RFU. He's now back playing and we'll look at him in terms of how well he plays."
