All. The. Way.
Former England and Wasps winger Christian Wades scored an incredible 65-yard touchdown with his first ever carry on his debut for the Buffalo Bills last night.
Wade took flight and ran through a huge hole in the Indianapolis Colts defence to score in a 24-16 pre-season friendly victory. The running back shocked everyone when he quit rugby union in October 2018 to pursue an NFL career, joining the Bills back in April.
Speaking after the game Wade says he knew where he was going before he had even received the ball.
“I knew where I was going even before the ball came because they overloaded one side,” said Wade.
“Then as soon as I got the ball I was off to the races. I was looking up at the screen to see if any of the linebackers or anyone was coming up behind me.”
The International Player Pathway allows Wade to train with the Bills during pre-season and enter their practice squad for 2019. Wade is ineligible to play during the season but will attempt to earn a place on the Bills’ 53-man regular season roster for 2020.
