Wade will have surgery to repair significant ligament damage to his mid-foot area.
London Wasps Director of Rugby Dai Young said: “It is devastating news for both the player and the Club. 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.”
In Wade’s absence, Wasps’ wing options have been boosted by Tom Varndell’s full return to training this week. He is likely to be available for selection for the Club’s next home game on December 15th.
