Sale are believed to be the favourites to sign Ashton, but it is understood Harlequins have also held talks.

A) Could we afford him?
B) Would he be outside the Celery Cap as he's been out of England a few years?
c) Given we've got Visser, Walker, Earle, Alofa2, Ibitoye, Mikalcius, and Coyle (the last three as senior Academy members) already (and Mike B can fill in there now by the looks of it!), do we want him?

Unless we change our attacking style significantly from last season, big if, he won't help, as for me he's a top finisher of breaks through the middle and not so great on go-wide early ball (i.e. the sort of dross we played last year). Either way, can't see it happening and don't want it either. Just the thought of seeing him doing that swallow dive in the quarters makes me shudder.

Sale just confirmed on their Twitter page that he's joining them.

Would have loved him, but more as a 15 than a winger, where he played all last season at Toulon (and smashed the try scoring record).

"Chris wanted to return to this country to fulfil his potential with England again, and we thought that he'd fit in well here....."

Let's see how good he is in an average side.

I bet he scores a lot of tries assuming he plays and isn't injured much.

Love him or loathe him, I have to recognise the man has a talent to get himself in the right place at the right time to receive that final pass and get over the line.
