Ashton virtually ends England career by joining Toulon
TOULON, France (AP) — Chris Ashton may have brought an end to his England career after agreeing to move to French giant Toulon from Saracens.
Toulon says the 29-year-old winger will join the three-time European champions from next season on a three-year deal.
England only picks overseas-based players in exceptional circumstances, so the move prevents Ashton from adding to his 39 appearances for his country.
Ashton, who joined Saracens in 2012, currently is serving a 13-week suspension for biting.
