George Kruis ruled out for ‘a number of weeks’ after ankle surgery

  • England second row George Kruis has had minor surgery on an ankle injury
  • Saracens have not put an exact timescale on the 26-year-old’s return
  • Kruis has won 18 caps since making his debut against New Zealand in 2014.
England forward George Kruis will be out for “a number of weeks” after having ankle surgery, say his club Saracens.

The Premiership and European champions have not put an exact timescale on the 26-year-old’s return but expect him to be out for “a number of weeks”.



“We are in all in agreement that it’s in the best interests of the player to undergo this minor procedure now,” said Sarries director of rugby Mark McCall.

Kruis has won 18 caps since making his debut against New Zealand in 2014.

He was an integral part of the side which won the Six Nations Grand Slam earlier this year, and started all three Tests in the series whitewash against Australia in the summer.
