London - England second row forward George Kruis has
committed to newly-crowned English champions Saracens signing a new three year
contract, the club announced on Monday.
The 28-year-old lock - capped 25 times and once by the
British & Irish Lions last year - was instrumental in Saracens reclaiming
their English title from defending champions Exeter in the Premiership final
Kruis - a one-club man who came through the Saracens Academy
- follows director of rugby Mark McCall and several of the backroom team as
well as captain Brad Barritt in signing new contracts.
"It was an easy decision to make really," Kruis
told the club website.
"I've progressed so much in my time at Saracens and
we've achieved so much as a group over the last few seasons together.
"It's a hugely exciting time to be involved here, we've
got a massively talented group of guys who are all hungry to keep improving.
I'm really proud to be part of that."
Kruis - whose team-mate Vincent Koch signed a new four year
contract also on Monday - featured in Saracens' 2017 Champions Cup triumph and
also a Premiership title in 2015, as well as being part of the 2016 Premiership
and Champions Cup winning side.
