England head coach Eddie Jones has been handed a timely boost ahead of next month's Six Nations with Saracens confirming that lock George Kruis will be recovered from a fractured cheekbone for the champions' tournament opener against France.

"George will be fine for the Six Nations. The question is whether he'll play against Toulon or not. We won't know that until next week but I'd say it's unlikely," said Saracens director of rugby Mark McCall ahead of their Champions Cup double header against Scarlets on Sunday and the French giants the following Saturday.
