Injury News: Exeter star joins England’s lengthening injury list

Exeter playmaker Henry Slade has been added to England’s lengthening injury list ahead of the Six Nations.

The Exeter Chiefs playmaker suffered a shoulder complaint in his side’s 28-21 Champions Cup defeat at Glasgow on Saturday.

The 24-year-old will undergo further investigations into his shoulder complaint, becoming a doubt for England’s opening Six Nations clash against Italy in Rome, on February 4.

“Henry Slade has not travelled to Portugal for England’s training camp,” read a Rugby Football Union (RFU) statement.

“Slade will remain with Chiefs for further assessment of a shoulder injury he sustained on the weekend.”
