Former England test winger Chris Ashton has been banned for 13 weeks after being found guilty of biting.

Ashton was charged for biting Northampton's Alex Waller on two separate occasions during their match last weekend.

The first charge was upheld, but the second was dismissed. He'll be free to play again on December 19th.

The 39-test winger was banned for 10 weeks last season for making contact with the eye area of Ulster back Luke Marshall during a European Champions Cup game.
