Shenton was part of the England squad which played in the 2014 Four Nations Down Under, and he would like to help McNamara’s men make up for the disappointment of that tour.
“For me, it would be great to back involved,” he told Love Rugby League.
“We’ve got a good team now, England, it’s been growing over the years.
“I think Steve McNamara has done a good job of building.
“It’s been a long time since we had a proper Test series against one team.
“It would be great to be involved in it.”
Shenton is anticipating a tough test against the French.
“It’s a full Test match, there’s no messing about,” he said.
“They’ve got a pretty experienced team now, and if they’ve got a full squad of players to pick from, then that could be a pretty tough game.”
