Henry Slade will join his England teammates for the first time in this year’s Six Nations as he steps up his recovery from an ankle problem.

A statement released by England said Slade and Manu Tuilagi will continue their rehabilitation when they meet a 25-man squad for a three-day camp in Kensington.
