Wigan’s Sam Tomkins is confident that England can see off the competition in their forthcoming Autumn International Series.
The series is contested by England, France and Wales with the final being played at the Salford City Stadium on the Remembrance Sunday.
England coach Steve McNamara’s 24-man squad consists of Warrington Wolves prop Chris Hill, who receives his first ever call up to the senior squad.
Two NRL players also made the cut, Canterbury- Bankstown Bulldogs prop James Graham and South Sydney Rabbitohs as Tomkins knows everyone will need to step up if England are to come out victorious.
“We are expecting to play well,” said Tomkins. “We want to stamp our mark on the other teams around us.
“It has been a great year of sport for the country and we aim to continue that. We’re looking for three wins as well as solid performances by all.”
The series kicks off on the 20th October at the Stade-Felix-Bollaert where France face Wales whilst England’s first game will be a week later against Wales at the Glyndwr University Racecourse Ground.
