McNamara: Don’t take France lightly

Steve McNamara

The England coach is taking his French opposition very seriously

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.
