Saracens boss Mark McCall has revealed that lock George Kruis will not miss the start of England’s Six Nations campaign.

The Premiership boss has revealed he expects Kruis to be fit when England host France on Feb. 4 following a minor cheekbone fracture.

McCal even feels Kruis could yet feature in Saturday’s European clash with Toulon.

Kruis was due to see a specialist on Tuesday night, to determine whether he can return to action as soon as this weekend.

“George will definitely be available for England, and there’s a slight chance he’ll be available this weekend,” said McCall

“He’ll go and see a consultant this evening, and hopefully we’ll find out then.

“He’s not far away, so it’s going to be that conversation and we’ll be guided by the conversation.

“George is able to train now, it’s not an injury that’s preventing him from training, though obviously he’s not doing contact until he’s given the all-clear.”

Kruis suffered the cheekbone problem against Newcastle on Christmas Eve, but was quickly diagnosed with a relatively minor injury by Saracens. Jones is already set to be without the both Maki & Billy Vunipola, Manu Tuilagi, Chris Robshaw and Joe Marler for the opening game against France.
