The Exeter Chiefs centre talks in depth about his diagnosis with diabetes and how it affects his life as a player and a person, as well as the steps he took to overcome his small daily obsessions that would be a part of his daily life. Slade opens up about how fatherhood as changed him as a person, what it means to be a 'Janner' and how much representing his country means to him.
