Tuesday hearing for Ashton

Date published: September 19 2016

Saracens wing Chris Ashton is set to appear before an RFU disciplinary panel charged with acts contrary to good sportsmanship (law 10.4(m)).

The international back was cited for two incidents during the weekend’s Premiership match between Saracens and Northampton Saints.

He is alleged to have bitten prop Alex Waller on two separate occasions. The first occurred in the 24th minute of the match and the second incident, one minute later.

The player will appear before an RFU disciplinary panel chaired by Philip Evans QC with Tom Rees and Paula Carter in London on Tuesday, September 20.
