Should Chris Ashton Have Been Banned for This?

Footage has emerged of Saracens winger Chris Ashton shouting “push it” as he attempts to charge down Harlequins fly half Nick Evans whilst he attempts a conversion in their Premiership semi-final. A number of people have called for Ashton to receive a band for unsportsmanlike behaviour but so far he has escaped with just a slap on the wrist. Should Ashton receive a ban?






  1. No chris should not be banned this is just as bad as Danny care call7ng for the ball from billy

  2. Calling for the pass is not the same thing at all, scrum halves have done this to forwards for years – I’ve had it done to me. However, Ashton should not be banned – someone does need to have a word though to tell him that rugby is played with honour & respect (eg Tom Youngs) and shouting in a charge down shows neither. He should stop behaving like a 6 year old (no disrespect to 6 year olds intended).
