ENGLAND take on France on Saturday in their Rugby League World Cup group.
A dominant 60-6 win over Samoa in their first game of the tournament last week got Shaun Wane side’s campaign off to the perfect start.
But now England have just as tough a test against France, who beat Greece 34-12 earlier this week.
England are one of the favourites to win the World Cup, and with it being a home tournament, they’ll be gunning for another big win here.

- England’s big clash against France will take place on Saturday, October 22.
- The game will kick off at 5pm UK time.
- England vs France will be held at the University of Bolton Stadium.
