This was in the French Top 14 rugby union league where the match was being played between Stade Francais and Toulon.
Being held in Mayol stadium in the Toulon town in southern France, it was a game that brought out the best in many players. The games in this rugby league started off after a two week break in the month of February for round 17. In the match between Toulon and Stade Francais, Chris Ashton certainly stole the limelight.

The three tries, he did take his tally to 17 this season, which he did in a total of 15 appearances. As there remain nine rounds this brings him towards the record of 21 tries of Napolioni Nalaga in a single rugby season.
