A product of the Saracens Academy, George Kruis has developed into a world-class line-out operator.

George Kruis and former Sarrie Dom Day are co-founders of oil and supplement company fourfive cbd.

The lock has become a vital component in the tight five at club and international level since making his professional debut for Sarries in 2009.

He benefitted from a season with Barking in 2008/09, his first taste of men’s rugby, and featured for Bedford Blues two seasons later alongside a handful appearances in Europe and the Premiership for the Men in Black during the club’s first title-winning campaign.

Kruis has played a huge part in a further four domestic successes as well as three European Cups, scoring in the second final against Clermont Auvergne.

On the international stage, the British & Irish Lion earned his first senior England cap in the 2014 Autumn Internationals and went on to play in the Rugby World Cup the following summer.

He was part of the EPS side that won back-to-back Six Nations titles in 2016 and 2017 and went on to represent the Lions in New Zealand.

Kruis is edging towards 200 matches for Saracens.
