England's Six Nation rugby star Chris Ashton talks tech

England winger Ashton expresses love of Apple

England winger and current star of the Six Nations Chris Ashton took time out of training ahead of tomorrow’s potential championship-deciding clash with France to talk tech with T3.

The 23 year old Northampton and England star has taken the Six Nations by storm equalling the tournament’s individual try scoring record in the opening two games with a brace of touchdowns against Wales in the opening tie before scoring four trys as England took on Italy at Twickenham.

Talking exclusively with T3, Ashton declared his love of Apple products saying in reference to the fruity tech giant: “I’m a fan of Mac. I think it’s all the best stuff, it’s always up there with the best technology and they are always on top of everything aren’t they.”

Adding on Apple’s style vs. substance debate Ashton, who owns the latest model 11-inch MacBook Air as well as an iPhone 4, said: “I think it’s a bit of both. With my laptop it is just so slim and small, it’s got everything I need and it’s just easy to put away and go.”

The man famed for his swallow-dive ‘Ash-Splash’ celebration, something he claims we will not be seeing again, is not a fan of all Apple products, however, having sold his iPad due to issues with its lack of Flash compatibility.

For the full interview with Chris Ashton including his favourite apps, tech battles with team-mate Ben Foden, hopes for the England vs. France encounter and more on that infamous celebration check out the video below taken earlier this week at Nike Town in London.
