England have named Wigan Warriors full-back Sam Tomkins and Hull FC winger Tom Briscoe in a 19-man squad for Saturday's Autumn International against France at MS3 Craven Park, Hull (2.30pm).

England coach Steve McNamara has also retained 16 of the players from the team that beat Wales 80-12 last weekend, with Warrington Wolves forward Ben Harrison replacing Wigan Warriors loose forward Sean O'Loughlin, who has been ruled out with a hamstring strain.

"We have a number of options going into the France game this Saturday and there could be changes to the side that defeated Wales last week," said McNamara.

"We have healthy competition for places across all areas and no one is guaranteed their place in the team. The players are aware of this and continue to put in the effort in training to make sure they are prepared and ready for
what should be a physical battle against France."

The England squad face France at MS3 Craven Park on Saturday November 3, kick off 2.30pm (local time).
