France will be aiming to apply pressure on danger man Sam Tomkins in Saturday afternoon's international against England at Hull KR's Craven Park.
The Wigan full-back has recovered from a knee injury and Zak Hardaker looks certain to make way for his return despite making an eye-catching two-try debut in England's 80-12 rout of Wales last weekend. France coach Aurelien Cologni was impressed with Hardaker but acknowledges that the newly-crowned Man of Steel poses even greater challenges.
"Sam Tomkins is a danger, especially with his kick-returns," Cologni said on his arrival in Hull.
"Our kicking needs to be the best possible, Thomas Bosc needs to find space and put pressure on him.
"But I don't want to just focus on him. We need to focus on us firstly. We know that, if we drop a lot of ball or make too many errors, it is not just Sam Tomkins who will beat us. The dangers can come from the edges or down the middle. Zak Hardaker did a great job last week too."
Saturday's game is a dress rehearsal for the final at the City of Salford Stadium on Sunday week and a useful gauge to measure both teams' readiness for the 2013 World Cup.
France began the autumn international series with a 20-6 win over Wales in Lens but they have lost 13 matches in a row to England since gaining a 5-1 win in the European Championship at Headingley in 1981.
"I'm excited because, after beating Wales twice, I want to know where we are against teams like England, Australia and New Zealand," said Cologni, who took over from Englishman Bobbie Goulding this year.
In selecting youngsters like Tony Gigot, Damien Cardace, Mickael Simon and Romaric Bemba, Colognin and his assistant Thierry Dumaine have one eye on 2013 yet they do no know if they will still be in charge by then.
They were handed the job when former Catalan Dragons coach Mick Potter turned it down and must wait for the outcome of the French Federation presidential election later this month to discover if they will keep it.
