FROM THE ARCHIVES: Chris Ashton wins disciplinary ‘Triple Crown’ award after biting ban


Saracens and England winger Chris Ashton has completed a spectacular career treble in an English premiership game against Northampton last weekend.

Ashton’s citing and subsequent 13 week ban for biting now means the loveable show-boater has been banned for biting, gouging and hair pulling during his union career!

In light of this stunning accomplishment – which is possibly unique in the annuals of not just rugby football – but all codes of football, The East Terrace would like to present him with the ‘Ungentlemanly Conduct Triple Crown Award’.

Who know what future glory lies in wait for this classy threequarter?
