The England wing Chris Ashton suffered minor injuries when he was attacked by a stranger during a night out in London on Saturday.

The 25-year-old was with fellow Saracens players, their wives and girlfriends, when someone unknown to them approached the group and started arguing with Ashton.

"A brief altercation occurred, which resulted in a friend of this stranger attacking Chris Ashton with a glass. The Saracens winger suffered two minor cuts on the left side of his face, but neither required stitches," a Saracens statement read.
