England star Henry Slade is imagining a Lions call-up to top the best year of his life – and says he does not care where the trip is played.
Slade ended 2020 as a winner of four major club and worldwide trophies – in addition to a first-time daddy.
Next on his to-do list is becoming a Lion, but this summertime’s trip remains in doubt due to the international pandemic, with talk of it being changed from South Africa to the UK to wait from cancellation.
Slade, who lines up for Exeter in today’s top-of-the-table Premiership clash versus Bristol, stated: “I’ve never ever been on a Lions tour and it is every players’ dream to make one.

” Playing it over here would be a bit odd and feel a bit odd. But if I get chosen for the Lions, which I am attempting my best to do, I wouldn’t care where it is.”.
Slade is one of 4 England stars remembered by Chiefs, along with Luke Cowan-Dickie, Harry Williams and Jonny Hill.
