George Kruis to retire from rugby at end of season

by Saba Gulmagarashvili

George Kruis, a former England forward, has announced his retirement from rugby at the end of the season.

After making his debut for England against New Zealand at Twickenham in 2014, he was a member of two Six Nations successes for England, including the Grand Slam in 2016.

Kruis’ remarkable 14-year rugby career will come to an end in Japan at the end of this season, having played for England, the British & Irish Lions, and Saracens.

Kruis, who announced his decision on his 32nd birthday:

“My rugby career has been amazing, the friends and experiences I have made will shape the rest of my life.”

“I have always given 100 per cent to everything I do and right now I’m planning on my focus being 100 per cent on building the fourfive.com brand when I finish with Saitama Wild Knights in May.”

“For me, I need to embrace my business and the opportunity it presents. I want and need to challenge myself to replicate my international standard off the field – and build the four five brand.”
