Barritt out until New Year

Date published: December 9 2014

England and Saracens centre Brad Barritt is set for a month on the sidelines due to a calf injury picked up against Australia.

Barritt should be fit for the Six Nations but he will miss Sarries’ European Champions Cup rematch with Sale this weekend as well as their Premiership clashes against London Welsh, London Irish and Gloucester.

“Brad pulled his calf in the last game for England,” said Saracens coach Mark McCall after his team’s narrow win over Sale last weekend.

“It’s obviously hugely disappointing for us to lose him for four weeks when he comes back with a pretty significant injury like that. But that’s life. We just roll on.”
