Chris Ashton Throws His Toys Out Of The Pram

This weeks illustration was Saracens wing  Chris Ashton who was recently omitted from England’s tour to Australia with Eddie Jones preferring Marland Yarde.  Ashton, 29, who last appeared for England in 2014, was originally named in the Saxons squad for the two-game tour against South Africa A but then declined the place.

 Did Ashton decline his place on the Saxons tour as a reaction to his Australian omission or chance to stay at home with his expectant wife? 

Whatever the truth is, it always provides a good opportunity to take the Michael out of the ‘marmite’ Saracen. 

As usual the illustration was done in gouache and acrylic in the wee small hours.
