Ashton praises 'fantastic day' at Wembley

Saracens try scorer Chris Ashton revealed how he has been waiting to score a try like his 17th minute effort, when the England flyer raced away to score from 70+ metres to delight the majority of the record crowd at Wembley Stadium.

"It was a great moment" reveled Ashton.

"We were defending really well, we had a few opportunities before that and thankfully it popped up for me at the right moment and it was a bit of a long run in but I really enjoyed it – I’ve been waiting for one of them for a while.

On the day itself he added; "The thing about Saracens is they work very hard to put on these days and not every club gets the chance to play in front of this many people for just a club game. It’s been a fantastic day and thankfully I the opportunity arose for me to get the try".
