So with the Wade story all over National press and with a big game tomorrow why the silence from the club? When do you agree to reports or deny? If true this hasnt happened over night has it? Not the first time in recent history either. A poor unprofessional show if you ask me.

Assuming he's breaking contract then there's plenty of legal stuff to do, which would potentially be effected by official statements one way or the other.

I would tend to agree with Raggs. Unfortunately I suspect the club have been caught on the hop by the leak and have to have certain legalities sewn up before anyone is allowed to speak. However they should have foreseen the possibility and been a little more prepared.

Iím not an expert but surely a bland statement either confirming that Christian is either still with the club or has departed (and a full statement will be forthcoming in due course) would not affect any legal issues?

Going on from this. All the fuss over Hughes and even EJ passes comment Im not too sure our club said too much. I may have missed it but sunshine shining at the Ricoh on a Friday is not want I want to see and read from a rather large comms department.

I'm sure the Club will issue a statement in due course, there's no point in rushing out a hastily written statement that requires a lot more answers than it gives.

It also sounds like some people are making out Wasps are just trying to pi$$ us off intentionally by not keeping us up to date on proceedings, I'm 100% positive this isn't the case.

Could be that if he has an NFL Contract, which persnally I think is unlikely, there is a clause that prevents that being released earlier than they want. If there is an agreement with Wasps to this, there is nothing they can say. Pure speculation of course.

He doesn't have an NFL contract.

Alex gray and csw are on practice squads, they train against the first team pretending to be whoever is up next in the fixture list.
They earn a minimum of $129k per season.

They have never played a single snap of regular season NFL. But to listen to the media you'd think they were mvp contenders.

Good on wade for giving it a go, but he has more chance of scoring a hat trick in the 2019 rwc final than he does of getting an NFL 1st squad contact in his late 20's having never played the game in his whole life aside from on his ps4 and Madden.

You surely answer your own question there! They're preparing for a big game tomorrow, would you prefer Dai tied down working with the PR team on the wording of a public statement?

Some of the views on here are very precious.

ĎIt is with great sadness that unfortunately Wasps RFC can confirm that Christian Wade has left the club with immediate effect.

We are not able at this moment in time to divulge the full details of the matter but will of course do so in due course. In the meantime we would like thank Christian for his utter professionalism, whilst at the club and the joy he has brought to many supporters. He will be sadly missed and the club would like to wish him all the very best for the future.


There we go all done, only took a couple of minutes, now letís beat Bath tomorrow

Sounds like the doors open if NFL doesn't work out.
