Ashton hails England Rugby Team

Chris Ashton, the winger of the England Rugby Team has hailed the performances of his England international team mate Alex Corbisero following the stunning series victory of the British and Irish Lions against Australia last month.

And Corbisero, who was absolutely stellar in his role at prop as he scrummaged the Wallabies to submit, was singled out for praise by Ashton for his dominant displays which many critics have also hailed as the pivotal moment in the team’s triumph Down Under.

ASHTON CELEBRATES TRY

England wing Chris Ashton has celebrated his try with one hand. The England management had warned the 23-year-old of the risks of dropping the ball in a flying one-handed finish.

But Ashton did it for two of his four tries in England's 59-13 Six Nations victory over Italy on Saturday.

And the Northampton player said: "I don't see why you shouldn't be able to celebrate in the way you want to."

Chris Ashton added: "It is right to celebrate tries. Scoring tries is what I want to do playing rugby.
