WATCH: Chris Ashton in danger of ban after incident during pre-season friendly
Chris Ashton could face a suspension before playing a competitive game for Sale Sharks after being sent off for punching an opponent.
The winger and full-back was caught on camera getting into a fracas with Castres No9 Rory Kockott, who was also given his marching orders.
Even though the game was friendly and played outside England, the RFU rules apply and hence the England international will have to wait for the decision from the board as he is set to relaunch his Premiership career after shifting from Toulon to Sale Sharks this season.
