Coach Ed­die Jones in­sists opt­ing for the prom­ise of Mar­land Yarde over the fin­ish­ing of Chris Ash­ton for Eng­land’s tour to Aus­tralia was a sim­ple de­ci­sion. Ash­ton now finds him­self over­looked with Jones pre­fer­ring the raw power he re­calls see­ing in Yarde’s try-scor­ing dis­play against New Zealand in Dunedin two years ago. “It wasn’t a tough call to make, it was an easy call to make,” said Jones. “Ash­ton has done well, but there are parts of his game that he needs to work on. Chris Ash­ton has fin­ished at club level and done very well, while Mar­land has got a lot of growth in him.”
