George Kruis nails down an off-field deal with old club Saracens
Ex-England international George Kruis has agreed to a one-deal with Saracens that will see the company he formed with fellow lock Dominic Day become the club’s official wellness partner. “Both Dom and I are committed to providing the best products available on the market and we are super excited to be partnering with Saracens to make our products available across the teams as the official wellness partner,” enthused Kruis, who played his last game for the London club in January 2020 before heading to Japan.
Kruis has been playing for the Wild Knights where he has one more season left on his deal and he told RugbyPass last month that he is hoping to return to the Premiership for the 2022/23 season once he returns to the UK in May at the end of the 2022 Japanese campaign. Day, meanwhile, has relocated to Dublin since his retirement from pro rugby and has recently taken up grassroots rugby, playing for Malahide in the All-Ireland League.
A club statement read: “Supporting the men, women and mavericks, fourfive are the latest partner to support all three elite teams at StoneX Stadium. Founded by former Saracens players George Kruis and Dom Day, fourfive aims to help people lead healthier, happier lives through the power of CBD and vitamin supplements.
“Kruis won three European titles and four Premiership trophies during his time in North London, and Day had a 14-year career at the top level which included over 250 matches.
“They set up fourfive together after both suffering from a number of injuries as they saw the benefits CBD could bring to assist in their recovery. After having a transformative effect and becoming injury-free, they decided to create the UK’s first tested CBD and vitamin nutrition supplements brand.

Both George and Dom know exactly what this club is all about from their playing days so to see them back again in this capacity is very pleasing for everyone. It is a very exciting partnership for us and we can’t wait to see it grow over the 21/22 season.”
