Exeter Chiefs playmaker Henry Slade is hoping to return from injury in time to feature on England's summer tour of Australia.

Slade -- a member of England's Rugby World Cup squad -- is currently recovering from a broken leg and is not expected to be fit until March.

The layoff has ruled the 22-year-old out of the Six Nations, but having been in promising form for Exeter, he has targeted a place on the plane to Australia.

"At the minute I'd just like to get back fit and be playing for Exeter," Slade told the BBC.

"Then if I get selected in the summer to go to Australia that would be awesome."
