Regarding Henry

While it is difficult to criticize a head coach who has just overseen 16 straight wins, I am more than a little bemused by the decision of Eddie Jones to leave Henry Slade out of the England squad preparing to face Scotland on Saturday week.
The Exeter player only had a few minutes off the bench against Italy last week but in that time looked a class act, as he has done on the very few occasions he has been allowed to pull on an England shirt.

I have no problem with Jonathan Joseph’s return to the squad, but surely Slade’s all-round excellence is deserving of further reward and I can’t help but think that Eddie Jones will have failed if players of the quality of Slade are not fully-fledged internationals by 2019.

Total Flanker – the older I get, the better I was
