Saracens Players’ Song About Chris Ashton Going To Toulon Is Brilliant

Chris Ashton Saracens

Saracens joined an elite club of just seven sides who have won multiple European Cups with a deserved victory over Clermont yesterday in Murrayfield.

The London side had too much for the Top 14 opposition, winning out on a scoreline of 28-17.

Chris Ashton played an instrumental role in the campaign, and set Sarries on the right track with a first-half try in the decider. However, the former England winger will depart the club after this season, making a move to Toulon.

Saracens are bringing in Liam Williams as a replacement, but¬†Ashton’s record speaks for itself. He became the record try-scorer in European rugby yesterday, rising above Vincent Clerc with a 37th try in the competition.

As the celebrations kicked into full swing in the changing rooms, the team had a song to mark the 30-year-old winger’s departure to the south of France, to the tune of Billy Joel’s We Didn’t Start The Fire.
