Exeter Chiefs fly-half Henry Slade has been named Premiership Player of the Month for February.

"Every time Henry Slade touches the ball something happens," said former England international Austin Healey.

"There is no doubt in my mind the lad has the potential to win 50 caps or more for England. He is too talented and works too hard not to achieve test caps.

Slade beat Wasps' Elliot Daly, Calum Clark of Northampton and Newcastle's Sinoti Sinoti to win the award.
