Wade signs new Wasps deal

England prospect Christian Wade has signed a new contract with Wasps that will keep him at the Aviva Premiership club until at least 2015.

Wade marked his first England appearance in Sunday's non-cap game against the Barbarians at Twickenham by scoring a try.

The 21-year-old claimed 14 touchdowns for Wasps during his first season of senior rugby, confirming himself as one of the Premiership's most lethal finishers. Despite missing a chunk of the campaign through injury, he still ended it as the league's second highest try-scorer.

"Wasps are a great club for developing young players, and I love playing regularly alongside the guys I have come through the academy with," Wade said.

"In the next few seasons, hopefully together and alongside some of the great signings we have made, we can make a real impact in all competitions."

Wasps rugby director David Young added: "Christian is a special talent and he has been outstanding for us this season.

"We've got a great core of young English players emerging here who are only going to get better and better. and it's great to get these guys committing their long-term futures to the club."
