By Max Rousié

If you are in the vicinity Headingley on sunday afternoon, be ready for a whiff of Garlic, the sight of beret's and English accents that you'd normally associate with 'Allo 'Allo!

The French national side are in town to take on an England side peppered with Rhinos players.

Whilst the England line-up will be familiar to you all, the French players may not. Here, Max Rousié previews the likely French side.

John Monie

France’s new head coach has brought greater professionalism and defensive steel to the national side. Formerly Head Coach with Wigan, Auckland Warriors and London.

David Berthezene (Les Catalans)

Outstanding young hooker that Leeds were rumoured to have been chasing after Matt Diskin’s injury this time last year.

Laurent Carrasco (Villeneuve sur Lot)

Tireless forward in both attack and defence. Tends to lock the scrum for Villeneuve but likely to play second row on Sunday.

Olivier Charles (Villeneuve sur Lot)

Centre cum winger and one of three Villeneuve Leopards players to make the 18 for Sunday.

Damien Couturier (Hull KR)

A hero of Toulouse’s victory over Widnes in the Challenge Cup, the centre was one of several to move from Toulouse to Hull KR.

Djamal Fakir (Les Catalans)

Giant young second rower christened France’s Sonny Bill Williams by the startled Aussie press after the impact he made against the ockers last year. Incredibly quick and skilful for his size. Already been a target for clubs in both hemispheres as well as RU.

Adel Fellous (Les Catalans)

No nonsense, 27 year old second row forward from Les Catalans who won’t shirk a tackle all game.

David Ferriol (Limoux)

Dependable prop or second row who is the cornerstone of the Grizzlies pack. Will bring steel and power to the French forwards.

Laurent Frayssinous (Les Catalans)

Stand-off half and France’s regular place kicker who kicked 10 goals against Russia last week.

Maxime Greseque (SM Pia)

Skillful scrum half that amassed over 30 points a game in this years Challenge Cup before drawing a blank behind a well beaten pack against Leeds. Man of the match against Russia last week.

Renaud Guigue (Les Catalans)

25 year old UTC fullback who is likely to be a Les Catalans star next year. Try scorer against Russia last week.

JĂ©rĂ´me Guisset (Les Catalans)

Rugged prop well known to British fans from his stints with Warrington and Wigan. Learned his trade with Canberra Raiders in Australia.

JĂ©rĂ´me Hermet (Villeneuve sur Lot)

Young winger from the Villeneuve Leopards. His inexperience may be a weak point England will look to exploit.

Adam Innes (Saint-Gaudens)

24 year old Australian born utility back who has been a stand out player for Saint-Gaudens this year.

Christophe Moly (Carcassonne)

Young Carcassonne halfback or loose forward. Likely to lock the scrum against England.

Grégory Mounis (Les Catalans)

Skillful young back rower who started his career at stand off.

SĂ©bastien Raguin (Toulouse)

Giant backrower and traffic warden. Try scorer against Widnes and Leeds in the Challenge Cup. If Mathers goes missing on Sunday please return him to SĂ©bastien: his rightful owner.

Julien Rinaldi (Les Catalans)

The emergence of Rinaldi onto the international scene was the only plus from France’s disappointing 2000 World Cup campaign. Since then the halfback has become one of the most authoritative players in French RL.

Frédéric Zitter (Barrow)

One of two UK based players named in the 18. The Barrow flyer is likely to be up against a Barrow lad in St Helens’s Ade Gardner.
