Leave Chris Ashton alone - Dawson

BBC Sport's Matt Dawson defends England's Chris Ashton in this week's Dawson Debates, after the winger's tackling was criticised following their Six Nations win over France.

Ashton was singled out for allowing Wesley Fofana past him in the first half for France's only try.

Also this week, Matt gives his verdict on who could get the British and Irish Lions' captaincy and pays a fond farewell to Ireland's Ronan O'Gara, whose international career may be over after being left out of the squad for their match against France.

You can send Matt your questions via Twitter using the hashtag #dawsondebates or on the BBC Sport Facebook page.

Listen to Matt Dawson as he previews the final round of the Six Nations on BBC Radio 5 live Rugby, 21:00 GMT on Thursday 14 March.
