Following his absence from England's EPS squad, Danny Cipriani is determined to work on his game after speaking to head coach Eddie Jones.

The 28-year-old, who missed out as Owen Farrell and George Ford got the nod, will continue with his club side Sale during the Six Nations.

But after a chat with Jones the fly-half is staying positive as he looks to prove he can take advice from the international coach on board.

"I've spoken to Eddie. He has told me the areas he wants me to work on," Cipriani told Sky Sports News.

"I'll go away and do that, fit it in Sale's game-plan and do the best I can to make sure I improve and be adaptable.

"I've just got to take on board what he said to me, what he wants me to work on and improve, and that's all I can do really – just go away and do that.

"If I'm honest I definitely think I could work on some things and put my hand up in certain areas and that's something I'm going to really have to focus on and get back in an England shirt."

Cipriani has been in impressive form for the Sharks this season after his World Cup snub and while he hoped to make the Six Nations squad, he admitted he wasn't expecting the nod.

"I wouldn't say there was much expectation…but I felt like I was in good form and I hoped I'd get a call-up," he said. "It didn't come. You take your ego out of it, and you think 'where can I actually improve?'

"The points he highlighted and the areas I want to work on, if I go back and do that…then I'll keep putting my hand up as best I can."
