Christian Wade shows he’s lost nothing in rugby comeback
Former England and Wasps winger Christian Wade made his much anticipated return to rugby last weekend, running out for Racing 92 in France’s Super Sevens series.
The Gallagher Premiership’s fourth highest try scorer of all time wasted no time in finding the try line on his return to the game, scoring against Montpellier in the first round in Pau. By the 31-year-old’s standards, this was an easy try to score, and only required one sharp step off his right foot after gathering a bouncing ball before powering his way over the line. This was on the way to Racing coming third in the tournament, after losing to eventual winners Monaco in the semi-final.

Since then, the former Wasps star has sent Twitter into a frenzy by Tweeting that his “return to rugby is imminent” on Thursday. Wade has been out of the game since 2018 after pursuing a career as a running back in the NFL for the Buffalo Bills. But there have been plenty of rumours this summers that the Englishman is on the cusp of a comeback, although no one is entirely sure where he will end up. This Tweet certainly confirms that he is making a return, but sheds no light on his destination.
This was the Tweet:
My return to rugby is imminent… 🙏🏿
