In the Ruck with Chris Ashton

Chris Ashton ( 29thMarch 1987 from Wigan) is an English rugby union player who has represented England in both Rugby League and Rugby Union. Ashton also plays wing for Saracens in the Aviva Premiership. Saracens wing says he still has the self-belief of his early England career and can be a dominant force again in world rugby.

Chris popped by the VU Clubhouse a few weeks back and we had a moment to catch up and ask a few questions.  See his responses below and be ready to cheer him on with the England boys tomorrow in Twickenham!
