Second row George Kruis 11th Saracens player to be handed England honours after late call up to Saxons squad

First published in Sport by

Saracens second row George Kruis will be called up to England's Saxons squad, the Watford Observer understands. 

The 23-year-old, who comes in due to another player's injury, will be the fifth Sarries player to make the Saxons squad after Joel Tomkins, Will Fraser, Richard Wigglesworth and Mouritz Botha all earned call-ups earlier today.

The talented forward joined Saracens in July 2009 and has previously represented England at Under-20 level.

Kruis will be the 11th Saracens player to be handed England honours after Mako Vunipola, Chris Ashton, Brad Barritt, Owen Farrell, Alex Goode and David Strettle were also called up to the senior squad.
