Ashton named in Saracens’ touring squad
Saracens’ touring party will include England internationals Chris Ashton and Mouritz Botha, it’s been confirmed.
The Aviva Premiership club’s squad will also feature South Africa’s Schalk Brits and Alistair Hargreaves, and former England international Charlie Hodgson.
As part of their week-long tour to raise cash for Beyond Rugby and Family Centre charities, Saracens will play a Bermuda Select XV, managed by England’s World Cup winner Lewis Moody, on May 31 at the National Sports Centre.
Bermuda Select XV will be skippered by ex-Ireland international Geordan Murphy.
Ashton missed out on the Lions squad and has been rested from England’s tour of Argentina.
