Kruis happy to be back
George Kruis made his first Premiership appearance for the club since recovering from a knee injury that ended his 2013/14 season against Wasps yesterday.
Kruis, who injured his knee away to Wasps last season played 80 minutes as Saracens beat Wasps 34-28 in an entertaining game at Twickenham.
“It was great to get a full game under my belt, but it was a long 80 minutes,” said Kruis.
He added; “Most of the second rows at the club have played in 40 minute stints during pre-season so it was a tough 80, but I really enjoyed it out there. We got stuck in and stayed true to our game plan and it came good in the end.
“It’s the beginning of the season, but we do expect a bit better from ourselves. We got the win, but we judge ourselves on performances so we know there’s lots to work on going into the Harlequins game.”
