Wade extends stay at London Wasps

British & Irish Lion Christian Wade insists he is looking forward to racking up more memorable moments after putting pen to paper on a new deal at London Wasps.

Winger Wade ended last season as the joint top try-scorer in the Premiership with 13, tied at the top with clubmate Tom Varndell.

And this form was rewarded first by Stuart Lancaster, who called the 22-year-old up for England’s tour to Argentina, and then Warren Gatland as Wade was drafted in for the British & Irish Lions tour Down Under to provide injury cover.

Wade went on to start against the Brumbies, playing the full 80 minutes as Gatland’s men lost 14-12.

Despite being injured Wade has retained his place in the England EPS and the speedster is hoping to have plenty more to celebrate in the near future after extended his contract at Wasps.

“The last few years have been amazing for me. Playing for England is a dream come true and pulling on a Lions jersey in the summer was something that I never expected,” said Wade, who made his Wasps debut in January 2011 after coming through the club’s academy.

“It was Wasps who gave me the platform to go on and do those things and I am extremely grateful for the opportunities they have provided me.

“Since I first made my debut for the club, things have changed dramatically and we are now building towards something that we all believe in and want to be part of.

“I’m excited about what the next few years will bring and am delighted to be here for the foreseeable future.”
