    The awards keep flowing Chris Ashton's way, as the wing picked up the 2009/10 RPA Sunday Times Try of the Year tonight.

    Ashton's nominated effort came against Leicester on October 31st, 2009 and was voted for by visitors to the RPA website last week. It comes hot on the heels of the Guinness Premiership Player of the Season, the Premiership's top try scorer and Saints Try of the Season awards, which Ashton collected last week.
    The wing, who heads off to Australia and New Zealand with England next week, beat off a shortlist that included Andy Saull's effort for Saracens against Harlequins and Joe Maddock's score for Bath against London Wasps.
    Ashton also finished second behind Leicester's Ben Youngs in the Norman Broadbent Young Player of the Year award. Courtney Lawes came third in the same category while Soane Tonga'uiha and Ben Foden finished second and third respectively in the Computacenter Players' Player of the Year.

    True prospect. Plays very clever with Foden.

    Pity they're on such **** teams.

    Props to him. I don't think that try is anything special, and have seen better from him so he still deserved it, just not for that.
