Chris Ashton, who was the former rugby wing for England is thinking of returning to the premiership in a bid to rebuild his international career. This initiative was taken soon after Julian Savea, the New Zealand wing made an announcement of his movement to Toulon as his best replacement. Once the commitments of Super rugby and Wellington Hurricanes come to an end, Savea would reach the South coast in France this year. Instead of joining the season last top 14, the 27 year old will arrive in France to join a team that has sold former Saracens wing already soon after completing one year with the club.
Sale Sharks are keen to move for Ashton and Toulon will inherit the best finishes in the history of New Zealand rugby. Savea’s tries in 54 tests that put him up with the best scores in the international game and total tally of 49 made by Doug Howlett. Savea expressed his happiness on a social media that it has been a great pleasure and he is thankful for New Zealand for supporting him. He has always loved playing rugby for his country and looks forward to his upcoming adventure.
