Ash­ton backed

Whanganui Chronicle - - Sport -

RUGBY: Eng­land coach Ed­die Jones be­lieves Chris Ash­ton can re­peat his 2012 hero­ics against the All Blacks at Twick­en­ham from 4am NZT to­mor­row. The winger makes his first Eng­land ap­pear­ance in four years, com­ing in for Jack Now­ell in one of three changes to the side that edged South Africa last week­end. Ben Moon will make his first test start at loose­head prop and Sam Un­der­hill re­places in­jured open­side flanker Tom Curry. Ash­ton scored a try in Eng­land’s record win over the All Blacks in 2012 and Jones has a good feel­ing about his in­clu­sion this time.
