Saracens bad-boy winger Chris Ashton is still aiming to return to Eddie Jones’ England fold despite his 13-week ban for biting Northampton prop Alex Waller.

“It may seem a long journey back, but I will do everything to get back to where I feel I belong,” he said.



“My clear ambition is first to regain my place in the Saracens team and then to regain my place in the England side.”

He maintains his innocence of both the gouging and biting incidents, the latter occurring in Saracens’ 27-12 win over Saints on 17 September.

“Both panels chose to accept the opposing version of events,” he told the Saracens website. “I did not agree with either verdict, but I must and do accept the sanctions.

“I would like to thank Saracens for their support during these times, and I am wholly committed to repaying the faith of all the staff of this special organisation.”
