Christian Wade voted as one of England’s biggest wastes of talent

Former England wing and NFL convert Christian Wade is set to make a much-anticipated return to rugby this weekend.

The 31-year-old is slated to feature for French giants Racing 92 in a sevens tournament on Saturday, nearly four years on from his last rugby appearance.

It is rumoured that the Top 14 side are looking for a medical joker and wing Wade could be an ideal addition to their squad as they prepare for 2022/23.

Winning just one cap for England, Wade is viewed by many as someone who didn't fulfil his full potential with the national side.

This list has a total of 37 England total caps combined. Dan Cole, Toby Flood and Tom Wood all have more caps individually than this five won combined.

The 2013 British & Irish Lion quit Wasps in order to pursue a lucrative career in the NFL, having grown disillusioned with rugby union. The 29-year-old was one of the most recognised names in the domestic game, but his continued absence from the international set-up – having won just one England cap on the 2013 tour of Argentina – had left him frustrated and fed up of continuously being overlooked. What a waste.
