England fly-half Danny Cipriani is back in contention to play in the Rugby World Cup after being re-bailed until November following an alleged drink-driving offence.

The 27-year-old was released on bail after being arrested on suspicion of driving while under the influence of alcohol on 1 June, following England's 73-12 win over the Barbarians at Twickenham, which saw Cipriani score two tries in a man-of-the-match display.

But the Sale Sharks number 10 has escaped further action until following the showcase tournament, which finishes on 31 October, after a police spokesman confirmed he has been bailed for a second time, pending further enquiries.

Centre Manu Tuilagi was ruled out of the England squad after admitting to assaulting police officers and coach Stuart Lancaster would have taken a similar stance with Cipriani had subsequent charges been proven.

However, Cipriani will be available for selection for the tournament, which starts on 18 September, but must first win a call-up into Lancaster's 31-man England squad, which must be announced by 31 August.

Following the altitude training trip to the United States city of Denver, England have returned home, where Lancaster is set to cut his squad ahead of the warm-up matches against France and Ireland before the opening game against Fiji.
