Aviva Premiership Top Try Scorers
Wade, who is expected to go on tour with England this summer, scored two tries in Wasps' 21-20 defeat to Sale Sharks on Saturday, ensuring he matched his team-mates' haul of 13 tries for the season. Therefore in Wasps' 22 matches in the Premiership this season, the deadly duo scored a combined total of 26 tries.
They were both four tries clear of the next leading try scorer - Northampton winger Jamie Elliott. The 20-year-old has twice bagged braces this season, against Bath and Sale Sharks, and scored a hat-trick against London Irish.
Harlequins scrum-half Danny Care, Saracens winger David Strettle and Gloucester winger Jonny May all finished with eight tries from the regular season and will hope to take that try-scoring form into the summer if, as expected, they all travel to Argentina with England.
Adam Thompstone enjoyed a strong debut season with Leicester Tigers with seven tries, while London Irish prop Halani Aulika finished alongside more recognised poachers, Saracens' Chris Ashton and Bath's Horatio Agulla.
