Former England rugby star Christian Wade continued his sublime start in the NFL by scoring almost a sensational touchdown in a preseason game for the Buffalo Bills.
The bills ran against the Carolina Panthers 24-6 in the fourth quarter on Friday night when Wade collected quarterback Tyree Jackson's ball just inside half of the opponent and ran 45 yards.
Wade, 28, who played for Wasps before quitting rugby to pursue an American football career, then avoided the first defender with a neat side step.
Wade was then confronted with three Panthers defenders but somehow exploded through their tackles when they all fell to the ground.
He then showed his raw pace to shoot through space before avoiding another diving gear from the defense that was just not fast enough.
] Wade was eventually only a few meters away from the end zone, but the accounts failed to convert the touchdown because they had 27-14 winners at the Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte.
The game again led to wild partying among his Bills teammates on the sidelines, while coach Sean McDermott later greeted his performance.
& Great. Great, & he said. & # 39; I felt the sidelines like a tidal wave coming over me. Another special moment for him and for this team. & # 39;

The seven players this year the International Player Pathway program hopes to be signed as a free agent or selected for a exhibition squad for the coming season.
Wade has more chances to impress the horizon while trying to win a contract with the bills. The Detroit Lions play on August 24 before completing the preseason at home on the Vikings on August 30.
