Wade not prepared to rush his return

British & Irish Lions winger Christian Wade admits he is in a race against time to try and make England’s summer tour to New Zealand.

Wade has suffered a frustrating season since his return from the victorious Lions tour, missing the autumn internationals with a hamstring problem before a foot injury has kept him out of action in 2014.

The London Wasps speedster is nearing a return but with a World Cup looming on the horizon in 2015, the 22-year-old will not be rushing anything.

“Hopefully I can make it back for a few games this season. I'm on target with my rehab and I want to get back this season with the England tour coming up,” he said.

“There's no rush for me to get back, but I'm working hard. No one can say precisely when I'll be ready.

“There won't be any risks taken but ultimately I want to be in that World Cup squad. That's the bigger picture.

“Although New Zealand is a massive tour and no one wants to miss it, but if it could jeopardise my future then then I will miss it.”
