France v England - Teams

Mark Regan will start against France in Marseille on Saturday after George Chuter sprained his knee.

Regan, who is enjoying the form of his life having returned to the international fold, had not even been selected in the squad for England's final warm-up match - with Chuter initially due to start and Lee Mears named on the bench.

However, with Leicester hooker Chuter suffering a sprain to his right knee in training, Regan has been propelled into England's starting XV.

Chuter joins Lewis Moody and Peter Richards in the treatment room - although all three are expected to be fit for the opening game against USA.

Meanwhile, coach Brian Ashton will be buoyed by news Andrew Sheridan has been released from hospital after suffering an infection in his right leg from an insect bite.
