Key English Kruis absent due to strain of calf


LONDON (AP) – Key George Kruis will miss England's last two rugby tests this month after struggling against New Zealand last weekend.

Kruis was injured in the second half on Saturday because England lost 16-15 at Twickenham.

He is expected to be out for four to eight weeks, coach Eddie Jones said on Tuesday.

Britain plays Japan this weekend and Australia next week.

Charlie Ewels replaced Kruis last Saturday, and competed with Maro Itoje, Courtney Lawes and Elliott Stooke to start.
