Exeter’s Slade in a race to be fit for Six Nations

Henry Slade will go under the knife

England and Exeter Chiefs back Henry Slade will have surgery on his right leg after he injured his right leg in his club’s Aviva Premiership victory over Wasps in Coventry.

Slade had to leave the field injured during the match and was assessed by medical staff last night on return to his club.

Exeter Chiefs head coach Rob Baxter has now confirmed that the England international will need surgery.

“Henry has an injury to the lower part of his right leg and it is envisaged he will operated on sometime today (Sunday),”said Baxter on Sunday.

“At the moment we have set no timescale on how long he will be sidelined for. A more detailed assessment will be made following the operation.”

England kick off their Six Nations championship campaign on Saturday 6 February against Scotland in Edinburgh.
