Ones To Watch Out For
A FOS (Fresh Off The Sevens), Wasps winger Wade has scored more tries than the length of his 21 years of existance.
In the 2009-2010 season alone, he scored 22 tries in both the XV (he’s represented England in all age groups) and 7s (he was a England call up for the 2010 IRB Rugby Sevens World Series), making him currently the 15th highest individual try scorer in Rugby Union.
Bear in mind this was before he could legally purchase a six pack.
A devistating mix of pace and brutal ball delivery, the kid is fast; owing partly to his Sevens experience and partly to the fact that he was trained by GB Olympian Julian Golding when he was a track athlete for the Royal Grammar Academy at Wycombe.
Geez, no wonder Lancaster was eager to have Wade serve in the Front row for the Elite side during the match up against the SA Barbarians. In the process, Christian by-passed the Saxons, one of the few players to get Rugby’s version of the NBA’s Prep to Pro.
Maybe it’s to early to call, but England may just have a new player maker in it’s midst.
