England Fans React In Horror To News Of Henry Slade’s Injury

After being considered as the great white hope of English rugby, Henry Slade could now miss the Six Nations after suffering a suspected broken led during Exeter’s 41-27 win over Wasps.

The news comes as a blow to Eddie Jones, after officially beginning his tenure as England coach earlier this week. Indeed, given George Ford’s performance against the Northampton Saints this afternoon, many were pinning their hopes on Slade making his mark during the Six Nations.

Slase’s injury will also worry Rob Baxter, as the playmaker’s performances have been instrumental in the Exeter Chiefs rise to the top of the Premiership table.
