Kruis ruled out

LONDON – England lock George Kruis has undergone ankle surgery and will miss the Autumn internationals, his club Saracens said yesterday.

The 26-year-old, a key part of England’s winning run this year under coach Eddie Jones, will join injured flanker James Haskell and wingers Anthony Watson and Jack Nowell among senior players on the sidelines.

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