Slade & Tuilagi | Eddie Jones gives injury update

England head coach Eddie Jones has revealed Manu Tuilagi and Henry Slade are winning their fitness battles for England’s Guinness Six Nations clash with Ireland.

“Manu trained fully today so should be in contention for selection. It’s good to have a quality player back,” the Aussie said on Wednesday.

“Slade trained today so we have just got to monitor Slade’s progress. Positive chance. Quality player. It gives us more options.”

England lost their opening fixture of the Championship, before defeating Scotland in Edinburgh.
