The 29-year-old former England international is alleged to have bitten Northampton prop Alex Waller during Sunday's English Premiership victory.

The two incidents occurred in the 24th and 25th minutes of the game at Allianz Park, which Saracens won 27-12.

Ashton's mouth appeared to make contact with Waller's hand during a tangle on the floor.
