Exeter Chiefs Lock In Key Re-Signing with Henry Slade Contract Extension

The long-standing speculation surrounding Henry Slade’s future with the Exeter Chiefs has been put to rest, as the club announced on Thursday that the England midfielder has signed a contract extension to remain at Sandy Park.

Slade, who has become synonymous with the Chiefs’ jersey since his debut in 2012, will continue his tenure with the double-winning Premiership and Champions Cup squad of 2020. This news comes amid the recent departures of numerous mainstays from Exeter’s successful side.

The rejuvenated 31-year-old’s improved displays this season have resulted in a recall to the England squad for the Guinness Six Nations, where he started all five matches after missing out on the Rugby World Cup.

“I’m delighted to be extending my stay with the club. I have a strong connection to Exeter and I’m excited to be part of the team’s promising future.”

In a statement, Slade expressed his delight at extending his stay with the club he has represented over 200 times, citing his strong connection to Exeter and the desire to be part of the team’s promising future. Director of Rugby Rob Baxter echoed these sentiments, describing Slade as the “key-stone” to Exeter’s plans for the coming seasons.

With Slade’s commitment secured, the Chiefs will look to build on their recent successes and continue their growth as a dominant force in English and European rugby union.
