OWEN FARRELL against Danny Cipriani is the REAL battle for No 10 in Britain today. The northern hemisphere’s two best fly-halves will be trading blows as Saracens and Gloucester chase a spot in next weekend’s Premiership final at Twickenham. Danny Cipriani and Owen Farrell will go head-to-head as Gloucester clash with Saracens In the black and red party is England captain and Saracens talisman Farrell, chasing a rare Double after winning the European Cup two weeks ago. But they will be up against the Cherry ’n Whites’ double Player of the Year Danny Cipriani, who led his team to third in the table. So here is how the two top tens match up ahead of the Allianz Park showdown. FLAIR NO fly-half who ever graced the English Premiership has had the skills that showman Cipriani possesses. Taking a leaf out of football, Cipriani has mastered his Ronaldinho-esque no-look pass and has the attacking kicking game that Lionel Messi would be proud of. Farrell is not known for his silky skills and plays a tighter and more controlled game in comparison to Cipriani’s fast and loose style. The England skipper has just six clean breaks this season compared to his rival’s 17 and even he admits: “Danny was a superstar at a young age and he could do some electric things. “He won the Heineken Cup early on in his career with Wasps and played full-back. You remember some of the tries he was involved in and scored. “It’s the same now — he is quick, gets himself out of tackles, beats people and is exciting. You look at things like that.” Winner: CIPRIANI Danny Cipriani has the X-Factor PLACE-KICKING FARRELL’S trademark stare when from he is on the tee has helped him notch 144 Premiership points this season to Cipriani’s 82. Gloucester often prefer centre Billy Twelvetrees’ kicking, though — and there is a big reason why as left-footer Cipriani cannot get close to Farrell’s accuracy of 82.2 per cent. He lags well behind making 64 per cent of Premiership kicks and also lacks the range of Farrell’s cannon of a boot. Winner: FARRELL DEFENCE WITH Rugby League running through his blood, Farrell was always going to be a fierce tackler. Whilst his technique for England has been borderline illegal at times this season, the 27-year-old has still completed 86 per cent of his shots for Saracens compared to Cipriani’s 79 per cent. Red Rose boss Eddie Jones has highlighted Cipriani’s defence as a glaring weakness and Sarries will look to rattle him by sending Billy Vunipola rumbling down his channel. Winner: FARRELL PASSING WHEN Cipriani was arrested in Jersey following a boozy pre-season night out, he told the police arresting him to be careful of his “golden wrists.” Well, he has lived up to that in his first season at Kingsholm with some of the classiest passes seen for decades to help set up 15 tries this season. Farrell, too, can throw a long pass but he loves to play flat and take the ball to the line so his showreel is second-best. Winner: CIPRIANI Owen Farrell possesses the leadership skills LEADERSHIP FARRELL leads from the front while Cipriani’s style is to use his incredible rugby brain. So, if it ends up being a slog in the trenches then Farrell is the one you want leading you over the top. But he, too, knows how effective Cipriani can be. Farrell said: “He looks like he’s taken control at Gloucester. “I worked with him a fair bit on tour to South Africa and a fair bit in the last World Cup camp. I’ve seen the way he likes to do things — you see a lot of that in Gloucester now. “He seems to be getting a lot out of them but also putting everyone in place to get the most out of themselves as well, which is good for the team.” [article-rail-section title=”Latest Rugby Union news” posts_category=”350″ posts_number=”6″ query_type=”recent” /] That respect for a fellow ten is reciprocated by Cipriani. The 31-year-old said: “Owen is unbelievably competitive and extremely talented. “The timing of his pass and the way he runs a team, you can see the aura he has. “Players buy into that. There are loads of different ways of leading and he does it unbelievably effectively.” Winner: FARRELL [bc_video video_id=”6037958412001″ account_id=”5067014667001″ player_id=”default” embed=”in-page” padding_top=”56%” autoplay=”” min_width=”0px” max_width=”640px” width=”100%” height=”100%” caption=”Mike Tindall says ‘you can’t push your views on people’ after Israel Folau has contract cancelled by Rugby Australia for homophobic post “]

The NBA is different than the other major professional sports.  In contrast to football, baseball, and hockey, front row fans are just feet from the action, with no barriers to separate them from the action.  For A-list celebrities it provides them with a chance for photo ops and national attention. Drake’s shenanigans and tomfoolery may […]
