Gloucester Rugby have imposed a £2,000 fine on fly-half Danny Cipriani following an internal disciplinary hearing into the events which resulted in him pleading guilty to resisting arrest and common assault.

Cipriani was initially fined £2,000 over an assault at a Jersey bar, after he appeared at the Jersey Magistrates' Court last week.

A female police officer suffered bruising to her neck during the incident in question at the Royal Yacht Hotel in St Helier.

A statement which appeared on the Gloucester Rugby website on Monday says that 50% of the fine they have imposed on Cipriani will be be paid to the club’s chosen charity, Pied Piper, while the remainder will be put towards Restart Rugby, the official charity of the Rugby Players’ Association.

They have offered their full support to Cipriani, and state that they 'do not believe he is guilty of bringing the game into disrepute.'

He is also required to undertake an additional 10 hours of community service and he will work with Gloucester Rugby’s community staff coaching local children.

"Having reviewed all the facts and spoken to both Danny and Willi Heinz, who witnessed the events first hand, we are in agreement with the Magistrate in Jersey that this was a minor incident," said a Gloucester Rugby spokesperson.

"While Danny is very apologetic for his actions, we do not believe he is guilty of bringing the game into disrepute and he will continue to get our full support.

"Danny has now faced disciplinary action from both the Courts and his Club and, with the new season about to kick off, our focus is very much on preparing for Northampton on the 1st September, so we will not be making any further comments on this matter."
