Danny Cipriani returns to the England squad for their upcoming tour of New Zealand.

Danny Cipriani has been named in the England squad for their upcoming tour of New Zealand.

The Sale Sharks fly-half won the last of his seven caps for his country back in 2008.

Meanwhile, England coach Stuart Lancaster has selected a total of seven uncapped players for the tour.

Gloucester Rugby centre Henry Trinder, Worcester Warriors full-back Chris Pennell and Leicester Tigers lock Ed Slater are among the new faces in the 30-man party.

The bulk of the squad will fly out to New Zealand on Tuesday, while those players involved in Saturday's Aviva Premiership final between Saracens and Northampton Saints will join their teammates on June 2.

England play their first of three Tests against New Zealand in Auckland on June 7.
