Slade named Player of the Month

Date published: March 13 2015

Exeter's Henry Slade was on Friday acclaimed as a player with the potential to win 50 England caps as he was named Premiership Player of the Month.

Slade was in sensational form in February as the Chiefs moved into the top four and he received a call-up earlier this week for the England training squad.

In the month of February, Exeter were one of only three Premiership teams to win all three of their league games as they moved from fifth to third in the table.

Slade beat an impressive shortlist of Elliot Daly (Wasps), Calum Clark (Northampton Saints) and Sinoti Sinoti (Newcastle Falcons) to win the award.
