OFFICIAL: Christian Wade completes his return to rugby

Former England winger Christian Wade has completed his return to rugby by signing with Top 14 outfit Racing 92.

He has been searching for a club after his journey in American football ended when he was released by the Buffalo Bills in April.

The speedster said in a social media post: “I’ve made my return to rugby with an amazing team and I can’t wait to start this new chapter.”

Speaking to Coventry Telegraph, he added: “I’m going to be here for the rest of the year. This is officially my comeback to the world of rugby.

“I did four years in the NFL, had a great time, great experience, was able to make some good friends.

“I learned a lot of different stuff that has added to my career in terms of how I approach sports in general, especially at the elite level and I feel as though I’ve got a new level of expertise and experience I can bring to this team.

“Everyone knows about Racing but, having been in the environment for a week or so now, I can say this is probably the best environment I’ve been in and definitely one of the best teams in the world.”
