The 30-year-old, who only recently returned to the global fold, has been remanded in custody until a hearing on Thursday.

The Gloucester star pleaded guilty to common assault and resisting arrest and was ordered to pay £250 compensation to a woman police officer.

Gloucester have pledged to give Danny Cipriani their "full support" after he pleaded guilty to common assault and resisting arrest following an incident at a nightclub in Jersey.

Three other charges were dropped.

"He's been remanded in custody until his court appearance at the magistrates' court at 10am tomorrow".

The incident happened just hours after England cricketer Ben Stokes was cleared of affray following a city centre brawl outside Bristol nightclub Mbargo.

He recently returned to the global fold during England's tour of South Africa, but this latest incident will not please head coach Eddie Jones.

His English club, Gloucester, said in a statement: "Gloucester Rugby are aware of an incident involving Danny Cipriani in the early hours of Wednesday morning following an incident at a St Helier nightclub".

Cipriani's career has been littered with off the field sagas that have damaged his reputation with the powers that be and restricted his global career since making his Test debut against Wales in the 2008 Six Nations tournament.

"The club will be issuing no further comment at this time but will make a further announcement in due course".

The fly-half, who recently returned to Eddie Jones' England squad and made his first Test start for 10 years against South Africa in June, was in Jersey taking part in Gloucester's pre-season training tour.
