England Add Star Name To Their Squad Ahead Of Six Nations Clash With Ireland

Back in action.

England have added centre Henry Slade to their Six Nations squad ahead of their clash with Ireland on Sunday week.

Slade has been out injured for a number of weeks and joins the camp as he steps up his rehabilitation before being fully integrated back into the squad. Jones has named a 25-man squad for camp with injured centre Manu Tuilagi joining Slade for rehabilitation.

It’s not known yet if either player will be fit and available to face Ireland at Twickenham in Round 3.

In addition, Cameron Redpath will join the squad for training purposes this week while Courtney Lawes is rested.
