Danny Cipriani is going to be "the calmest guy in the room" on Saturday after finding out he has been recalled to the England side for their third Test against South Africa. 

Cipriani has not featured in the England starting line-up since November 2008 and has been selected for the match in Cape Town following his impressive performance off the bench in the last match. 

The fly-half has been selected ahead of George Ford after the tourists slumped to their fifth successive Test defeat when they lost 23-12 to South Africa in Bloemfontein.

Cipriani wants to repay the faith that Eddie Jones has shown him with a composed performance, as England look to avoid losing the series 3-0.

"I'm excited for Saturday and obviously I know the size and magnitude of the game," he told Sky Sports News. 

"But, you know, if you ride the wave too high or too low then you will end up all over the place.

"I'm pretty calm and that's my position, and where I'm going to be on Saturday is to try and be the calmest guy in the room."
