Slade added to England training squad

Slade added to England training squad

Henry Slade has been included in the England training squad assembling at Pennyhill Park.

The Exeter Chiefs back replaces Saracens centre Brad Barritt, who suffered an ankle sprain playing for Saracens on Sunday and will miss the rest of the RBS 6 Nations.

Hooker Rob Webber (Bath Rugby) comes in for Tom Youngs (Leicester Tigers) whose training will be limited on Tuesday following Leicester Tigers’ game with Newcastle Falcons.

Tom Croft suffered a dislocated shoulder in that match and will remain under the care of the Leicester Tigers medical team, while Henry Thomas will be treated by Bath Rugby for a shoulder strain. Both will be unavailable for the remainder of the tournament.

England head coach Stuart Lancaster said: “The weekend’s games gave us plenty to think about in terms of looking at guys who will have benefitted from the additional game time.

“It’s unfortunate that Brad was injured but Henry Slade has been playing well for Exeter and it’s good to be able to call him in. We also wish Tom and Henry all the best for their recovery.

“Mike Brown trained fully last Friday while Luther Burrell and Kieran Brookes should be fit to train tomorrow and we are looking forward to two full days of training before we announce the side on Wednesday.

“Sam Burgess will also come into camp to further his experience of this environment as Bath have no game at the weekend.”
