Neither Slade or Watson have played for England in this year’s Six Nations. Watson injured his calf before the defeat to France while Slade picked up a serious ankle injury in December while playing for Exeter against Leicester.

Leicester’s Tuilagi, 28, was injured in England’s first-round defeat to France and didn’t feature during the 13-6 win against Scotland.

This week is a rest week for the tournament with England next facing Ireland on Feb. 23.
