The club stated also said that Cipriani is "very remorseful and "fully accepts the outcome and his punishment" following a 13-minute hearing at Jersey magistrates court on Thursday morning".

The 30-year-old, known away from the sport for his relationships with Kirsty Gallacher, the television presenter, and Kelly Brook and Katie Price, the glamour models, was accused of common assault, larceny, resisting arrest and being disorderly on licensed premises in Jersey.

Mr Cipriani (30), who won his way back into the England fold in South Africa this summer, was fined £500 for assaulting a doorman and £1,500 for resisting arrest and injuring a female police officer.

Two other charges - larceny and being disorderly on licensed premises - were dropped.

The incident occurred at The Royal Yacht hotel in Mulcaster Street in the island's capital, St Helier.

Cipriani said he could have moved overseas but wanted to see if he made Eddie Jones's squad for the South Africa tour.
