Sir Clive Woodward’s four Six Nations players to watch

4. Henry Slade (England)

Age: 27 Caps: 34 Tries: 7

Woodward said: “Slade is a gem of a player – one of the main reasons Exeter are so successful – yet I’m not convinced England appreciate his full worth. He can play virtually anywhere although to my eyes he is a natural 13. However when George Ford and Owen Farrell play 10 and 12 the danger is that Slade gets squeezed out of the decision making process. England must get him more involved.”

DID YOU KNOW? Slade has Type 1 diabetes, and often injects insulin at half-time in a game
