Ashton and Strettle set the pace
In-form wings Chris Ashton and David Strettle have scored a combined total of 44 tries for Saracens since September 2013.
Mark McCall, Director of Rugby, said: “Chris and David have been consistently outstanding over the past 18 months. The try-scoring stats speak for themselves but they do so much more than finish brilliantly - their all-round game, their work rate and their commitment has been exceptional."
Ashton has scored 24 tries in 34 Saracens matches since the start of last season, while Strettle has scored 20 tries in 35 matches over the same period. They have scored a combined total of ten tries in the eight matches played by Saracens so far this season.
