Rangi Chase is set to make his first appearance of the Autumn international series after being named in a 20-man England squad for Sunday's final against France.

Castleford half-back Chase has been declared fit after missing the opening two games with an adductor strain, while Sean O'Loughlin is also back for the clash at Salford City Stadium.

Wigan forward O'Loughlin missed the 44-6 win over France in Hull last weekend due to a hamstring strain but has trained well all week and is included in Steve McNamara's set-up.

He is joined in the squad by Warriors team-mate Josh Charnely, who was overlooked on matchday at Craven Park last Saturday.

McNamara emphasised that Chase had trained well for the last two weeks, adding: "We have a fully fit squad going into the final, which is a great position to be in.

"Sean O'Loughlin has trained well all week and now has the chance of selection on Sunday.

"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."

Sunday's final showdown kicks off at 17:00 GMT.
