England coach Steve McNamara has told his side not to be complacent when they take on France in Saturday’s World Cup quarter-final in Wigan.
The English go into the game heavy favourites, having dispatched their cross-Channel opposition 44-6 and 48-4 in their last two meetings.
McNamara doesn’t think it will be plain sailing this time, though: “I think Richard [coach, Agar] has got them organised pretty well and structurally they look really good.
“I think France are going to be a really tough team. They showed that and they stood up to Samoa.
“They were brave and pretty heroic at times under some real pressure.
“They have got a lot of spirit within their team, so they’re dangerous opposition for us,” he added.
