Danny Cipriani has been re-bailed until mid-November after being arrested on suspicion of drink-driving in June, meaning he will be available for England's Rugby World Cup campaign.

The Sale Sharks fly-half was involved in an early-hours collision in London on June 1 and was taken to a police station in the city before being released on bail.

Cipriani is in England's training camp for the World Cup - with the selection to be cut to 31 later this month - and head coach Stuart Lancaster confirmed recently that Cipriani remained in his plans despite the incident.

"At the moment he"s not been charged with anything so as a consequence is in camp and training as everyone else is," Lancaster said in June.

And Cipriani is set to be available for the competition on home soil, which runs from September 18 until October 31.

"A man arrested on suspicion of drink driving on Monday, 1 June, following reports of a collision in Imperial Road, SW6, has been re-bailed to a date in mid-November pending further enquiries," confirmed a Metropolitan Police spokesperson.
