Ewan Ashman has had to return to Sale Sharks as injury cover just three days after he went out on loan to Glasgow Warriors.

On Monday it was confirmed that the Scotland No.2 had put pen to paper on a season-long loan deal with Glasgow from Sale Sharks, a move made with an eye to a more permanent arrangement.

However, Alex Sanderson and co. have had to ask for him back – for the time being at least.

The Sharks have an injury crisis at hooker and have named Ashman on the bench, while Glasgow Warriors have listed the hooker as ‘unavailable for selection’.

“On the bench, Ewan Ashman returns from his loan spell with Glasgow Warriors after Curtis Langdon was ruled out of action through injury,” said Sale Sharks. “The Scotland star is named as a front row replacement alongside Ross Harrison and Coenie Oosthuizen.”

Ashman made an immediate impact for Scotland during the Autumn Nations Series, producing a magnificent finish to touch down for a game-deciding try on his debut against the Wallabies.

Ashman, who was born in Toronto, qualifies for Scotland through his Edinburgh-born father, having represented his country at the U16, U18, and U20 levels prior to his senior debut.

The hooker has a keen eye for the try-line, scoring 11 tries in 15 U20 outings and finished as joint top try-scorer at the 2019 World Rugby U20 Championship in Argentina.

Ashman has made 12 appearances for the Sale Sharks since making his professional debut in a 40-31 win against the Leicester Tigers in September 2020.

He began his career at Sandbach RFC, where former Warrior and current Sale and Scotland winger Byron McGuigan was a member of the coaching staff at the time.
