Six months: Christian Wade

England and Wasps have been hit by a blow after Christian Wade was ruled out for up to six months due to a foot injury he suffered over the weekend.

The 22-year-old wing will have surgery to repair significant ligament damage to his mid-foot area, with director of rugby Dai Young obviously upset.

"It is devastating news for both the player and the Club," he told London Wasps' official website.

"Christian was hugely unlucky to miss out on being capped this Autumn with England and he had hoped to push on and put in some good performances for Wasps to get him in contention for Six Nations selection.

"It is a huge blow for him but he is a young player with a huge future and his time will come around again."
