Saracens winger Chris Ashton is not thinking about a recall to the England squad ahead of the Aviva Premiership final.

Ashton congratulated Danny Cipriani on his return to the international fold for the tour of New Zealand but he says he cannot take his focus off his club's second big match in a week.
Saracens failed to dethrone Heineken Cup champions Toulon in their first final on Saturday as they went down 23-6 at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff.
England coach Stuart Lancaster will add further players from Saracens and Northampton to his travelling party after Saturday's clash at Twickenham and Sunday's non-cap international against the Barbarians.
"It'd be good if it happens but it only works if you're concentrating on what's happening this week, and that's about winning this Premiership final," Ashton said.
"It's my first final that I've been involved in and I'll do everything I can to win it. It's been a bad weekend. It happened and we've not had many losses this year.
"We've got to get it out of the system as soon as possible. We've got to forget it as soon as we can with this weekend coming up and just get on with it, I suppose.
"It's great for him (Cipriani). Congratulations to him. Hopefully I'll be catching up with him when he's out there. It shows how far he's coming from not being in the best position where he wanted to be and going back to Sale.
"He's happy with how he's been playing at Sale and good on him for getting that recall."
