England have named Wigan Warriors loose forward Sean O'Loughlin and Castleford Tigers half-back Rangi Chase in a 20-man squad for Sunday's Autumn International final against France at Salford City Stadium, Salford (5.00pm).

O'Loughlin has overcome a hamstring strain, which kept him out of England's 44-6 victory over France in Hull last week and Chase returns to the squad for the first time in this series after responding well to treatment on a adductor strain he sustained last month during the national team's high-altitude camp in
South Africa.

England coach Steve McNamara has also retained the 17 that played last week against France and has also drafted in Wigan wing Josh Charnley, who will be aiming to start the final after being rested last weekend.

"We have a fully fit squad going into the final, which is a great position to be in," said McNamara.

"Sean (O'Loughlin) has trained well all week and now has the chance of selection on Sunday. We also have Rangi (Chase) back in the mix after training well over the past fortnight. It will be a tough decision to make on who will miss out but all the players have the right qualities to pull on an England shirt."

The England squad to face France at Salford City Stadium on Sunday November 11, kick off 5.00pm is as follows (professional club and community club in
brackets):

England 20-man squad to play France (professional and community club)
Carl Ablett (Leeds Rhinos, Hunslet Parkside)
Tom Briscoe (Hull FC, Featherstone Lions)
Rob Burrow (Leeds Rhinos, Featherstone Lions)
Josh Charnley (Wigan Warriors, Wigan St Pats)
Rangi Chase (Castleford Tigers, Dannevirke Tigers)
Leroy Cudjoe (Huddersfield Giants, Newsome Panthers)
Gareth Ellis (Hull FC, Lock Lane)
Ryan Hall (Leeds Rhinos, Oulton Raiders)
Ben Harrison (Warrington Wolves, Barrow Island)
Chris Hill (Warrington Wolves, New Springs Lions)
Gareth Hock (Wigan Warriors, Wigan St Judes)
Jamie Jones-Buchanan (Leeds Rhinos, Stanningley)
Michael McIlorum (Wigan Warriors, Queens)
Adrian Morley (Warrington Wolves, Eccles)
Lee Mossop (Wigan Warriors, Hensingham)
Sean O'Loughlin(Wigan Warriors, Wigan St Pats)
Richie Myler (Warrington Wolves, Halton West Bank)
Kevin Sinfield © (Leeds Rhinos, Waterhead)
Sam Tomkins (Wigan Warriors, Wigan St Pats)

I was hoping we might of got to see Burgess! Would be good to see how he's improved.

Think Chase is worth a nod over Myler and I'd have Charnley back on the wing with Briscoe to Centre for Cudjoe.

I think it would be very harsh on Myler to drop him for Chase, especially with the erratic form Chase has shown this year.

Certainly we should have Chase for Myler, but cannot split Josh and Briscoe. Maybe rest Hall?

No way will he rest Hall, Mcnamarras Yorkshire bias will come through.

If Chase plays i will not be watching England for the first time in a long, long time...picking the player just symptomises all that is wrong with the game in this country and i would rather not spend a couple of hours getting irritated by it...

The mind boggles !
Where is Ratchford ? A player with the potential to be an England / Gt Britain player long after Chase has gone "Home" to Australia or wherever he was born :angry:

Anyone but Myler, he's Satan.

I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

There's not a lot wrong with the game if picking a former man of steel who has served the required residency probation is symptomatic of all our failings. I don't like country swapping either, but it's not worth getting too upset about. I think League is great and it would take a lot more than this to stop me watching.

On purely rugby matters, I wouldn't mind seeing him now that Sinfield has found his international mojo as the go-to player, although realistically I am not sure Chase will actually be our World Cup half.

Chase should be nowhere near the England squad, not because of the nationality debate, but he was suspended for a part of the season and looks nowhere near good enough.

Myler is 22 and should be the focal point for the future.

Cummins Out.

Chase hasn't got British citizenship yet so he shouldn't even be under consideration for an England spot.

That's me.  I'm done.

i'd pick my 88 year old mum before chase, and i am another who will not be going or watching as long as he is picked.

What does it mean
This tearjerking scene
Beamed into my home
That it moves me so much
Why all the fuss
It's only two humans being.
