I can still play for England - Ashton
Although it was an under-strength England side in action at Twickenham, it will still give Jones some concerns going into the three-Test tour to South Africa next month.Danny Cipriani returned to the international set-up for the first time since 2015 for the second half, but he could not inspire an England fightback.Ashton, who has not given up hopes of a 40th England appearance, opened his account after three minutes when Josua Tuisova went clear of Mike Brown to set him up.He gathered a Finn Russell chip for his second and then more slick passing and movement gave him the chance to complete the hat-trick.England: Daly, May, Trinder, Francis, Brown, Ford, Youngs, Marler, Singleton, Sinckler, Stooke, Launchbury, Robshaw, Curry, Mercer.Replacements: McGuigan, Genge, Schonert, Beaumont, Wilson, Robson, Cipriani, Solomona.Barbarians: Ashton, Tuisova, Radradra, Matavesi, Adeolokun, Russell, Williams, Buckley, Kayser, Afoa, Dillane, Timani, Fernandez Lobbe, Tipuric, Vito.Replacements: Polota-Nau, Uhila, Herrera, Tekori, Latu, Laidlaw, McAlister, Fekitoa.
