For a bet, it was a bet. Having left to try the American adventure in the NFL between 2019 and 2022 (he had succeeded in joining the Buffalo Bills squad), the English winger Christian Wade had returned to his first love and got a contract at Racingfor one season, initially.
The former Wasps arrow (32) succeeded: in nine matches, he scored seven tries and could have been even more prolific without several minor injuries. According to our information, Stuart Lancaster, future manager of Racing, and Laurent Travers, future chairman of the management board, have decided to keep Wade in the workforce next season.
When he was England manager, Lancaster chose to do without Wade for the 2015 World Cup. “I think it would be a great opportunity to work together, the player told us last December. It was he who gave me my first selections. » In addition, the unlucky of the year, Regan Grace, little prodigy of Welsh rugby thirteen, recruited last summer, should not be kept. Last August, he suffered a ruptured Achilles tendon before suffering a relapse when he was to resume. Grace will not have had the opportunity to play a single minute.
