England’s Six Nations injury troubles are a topic which is yet again on the lips of many Rugby insiders, as there is news on George Kruis’ cheek fracture which he suffered on New Years eve.

Kruis has been backed to be fit for the tournament by Saracens’ director Mark McCall, who stated that the youngster; “definitely be available for England.” And some music to the ears of the Saracens fans as he said; “there’s a slight chance he’ll be available this weekend.”

The 22 year old flanker was a doubt before now, along side many other of England’s men, such as Robshaw who is definitely ruled out for the much anticipated test with his troubling shoulder injury.

Although, Eddie will definitely be glad to have such young talent available for the tournament after the injuries he has faced so far leading up. Let’s see how George keeps up the top performances in only his second Six Nations.
