Sale have endured a difficult season to date and currently sit bottom of the Aviva Premiership table, five points adrift of London Irish and ten behind newly-promoted London Welsh.
This weekend the Sharks welcome Exeter Chiefs, a side who they were thrashed by 43-6 on the opening day of the season, ensuring Cipriani's debut, albeit from the replacements bench, was one to forget.
But following back-to-back LV= Cup wins to book a surprise semi-final berth, and after some improved displays prior to the European and LV= Cup break, Cipriani believes Sale have turned the corner.
"We've been finding some consistency - we've been doing it since Christmas, and there are some games that we've lost closely where we've let things slip," he said.
"But we're starting to get a structure in how we play, which perhaps we should have done in pre-season, but for whatever reason, that didn't go to plan and we're playing catch up now.
"We're doing that adequately at the minute, but we need to carry it on into the Premiership this weekend.
"I don't think we were too worried about what was going because as players you just get on with it. The main thing is that we were all positive, and we all stay pretty tight together."
Both games featured former All Blacks flanker Dan Braid, who joined the club in January making his debut from the bench in the 32-12 Aviva Premiership defeat at Saracens.
And Cipriani believes the Kiwi has made a huge impact at the club, something he expects to continue when he makes his full Aviva Premiership debut this weekend.
"Having Dan Braid come in has helped things - he gives us experience and he's a great communicator," he added.
"He's a world-class player and we've all really tried to buy into what we can do as a team, and that's helped him in that way.
"Obviously, he's a very good player, but it's his brain and his knowledge and his understanding of the game.
"It's little coaching points he makes to the team, certain players in the back row and to myself. They have helped small parts of our game and sharpened us up. It's always good to have a forward who can communicate and talk."
