The Olympic dream is "not really an option" for Christian Wade unless Team GB bosses actively seek the in-form Wasps wing's services, according to Dai Young.

Wade grabbed an Aviva Premiership record-equalling six tries in Wasps' 54-35 win at Worcester on Saturday, the 24-year-old offering a reminder of his deadly finishing abilities ahead of a landmark summer for rugby.

Rugby Sevens will make its Olympic debut in Rio in August, but Wasps rugby director Young has had no contact from Team GB coach Simon Amor about the availability of any of his players.

"We've had no communication on anybody at Wasps yet," Young said when quizzed on whether Wade could be heading to the Olympics.

"The reality is that he and Joe Simpson are both 15-a-side players for us.

"It's a great experience playing Sevens and both have played Sevens previously.

"We'd need to have all the details before we could say anything about it really.

"But we've had no information on whether that's an option, and as far as we're concerned it's not really an option - it hasn't been discussed."
