Footage Emerges Of Chris Ashton Punch That Saw Him See Red In Pre-Season Friendly

Ash smash.

Chris Ashton made headlines for all the wrong reasons once again over the weekend, after he was sent off in a pre-season friendly –  just weeks after making his return to England with Sale Sharks.

The former Toulon and Saracens winger was shown a red card in the second-half of Sale’s clash with Castres after a punch scrumhalf Rory Kockott, with the French international scrumhalf also red-carded by the referee.

Ashton must now wait and see if he’s cited ahead of the new Premiership season. The RFU will have received a report from the French refereeing team and will make a decision today on whether or not to cite him.

Check out footage of the incident below.
