Chris Ashton Smashes Top 14 Record In Toulon Win
England winger Chris Ashton may not be the most loveable of characters, but there’s absolutely no doubting his rugby ability. The former Saracens star has built up a bit of a reputation over the years, but he’s a hell of a rugby player.
His try-scoring record in the Premiership was pretty damn impressive, bagging close to 140 tries in a ten-year stint that saw him line out for Northampton and Saracens.
Chris Ashton breaks the @top14rugby record for tries scored in a single season.
22 tries and counting.

Now in just his first season in the Top 14, he’s smashed the record for tries scored in a single season, after he bagged his 22nd in Toulon’s win over Montpellier this afternoon.
And he’s still got two regular season games to go, along with the play-0ff’s. Say what you want about the man, but by god he knows how to finish.
