England win in France – France 18-32 England RL

England easily won their warm-up game in France by 32-18 having led 20-6 at half-time. But they did let France in for a couple of late scores. There is no doubt though that although they should beat Wales in the first of their four nations match’s it will be a different situation against both the Kiwis and Wallabies.

Of the game Adrian Morley said: (quote) It was a wake-up call. We have probably not been going as well as we thought we were but that is not to say we cannot have a good week’s preparation and sort a few things out and be ready for Wales. On the whole, we are probably disappointed with our performance. We are not devastated by any means, there was some positive stuff. (end quote)
