NEWS: England’s 2022 Six Nations hopes received a significant boost on Friday with the news that hooker Jamie George has recovered from a knee injury.

George suffered the injury playing for England in their 32-15 win over Australia in November and looked likely to be sidelined until January at the earliest.

But the 31-year-old has now been named in Saracens’ starting XV to play Northampton in the English Premiership on Sunday.

He will also captain the team.

Saracens Director of Rugby Mark McCall was happy to have one of his key players back.

“Jamie was nearly OK for last weekend but now he’s raring to go. It’s great to have him back,” said McCall.
