Saracens are to appeal the 10-week suspension given to England wing Chris Ashton for making contact with the eye area of Ulster's Luke Marshall.

The Aviva Premiership champions received the hearing's written judgement on Friday afternoon and, having consulted their legal team, they have opted to contest the severity of the punishment that currently rules Ashton out of the RBS 6 Nations.

"Ashton, who pleaded not guilty in the independent disciplinary hearing in London last Wednesday, will be appealing against the level of the sanction imposed," a Saracens statement read.
