Wasps winger Christian Wade has vowed to continue his progress on return from injury.
The 22-year-old took the Aviva Premiership by storm last season, scoring 13 tries and scooping individual honours during a campaign to remember at Adams Park.
However, his continued development has been hampered this term, with the youngster out for six months following a foot injury picked up against London Irish back in November.
Wade has always looked for ways to improve his game since debuting for Wasps back in 2011, and he expects to continue learning when he returns to action later this year.
“I think we all get better with the more games we play. We are exposed to different experiences and situations and just get better at making good decisions consistently,” he told GiveMeSport.
“I've worked closely with my coaches over the years and tried to develop those areas that I'm weak in as well as perfecting those areas that I'm strong. This is very important.”
Wade was speaking just days after signing a new long-term contract in Buckinghamshire, with the youngster tied down to Wasps for the ‘foreseeable future’.
And, over the coming years under Dai Young, he hopes to help the club become title challengers both domestically and in Europe once again.
“My goals at club level will be to keep improving both individually as a player and as a team so that we can start to emerge as a top Premiership side who win silverware and who are tough to beat,” he added.
“We've got a well-balanced young side with lots of potential and it's time to start producing results.”
Whilst the speedster won’t be in action, Wasps’ next chance to impress will be against Gloucester in the Anglo-Welsh Cup. Perhaps more importantly, they face the same team on April 3rd in an Amlin Challenge Cup quarter-final.
