French coach Aurelien Cologni has called teenager Ben Garcia into a 23-man squad preparing for the upcoming international against England at Hull KR's Craven Park on Saturday, November 3.

The former Avignon forward paid for his own way to Australia where he secured a place with the Wynnum Manly Seagulls side, taking out the club’s Colts player of the year despite breaking his arm.

The talented forward has been linked to the Broncos Under 20’s squad for the 2013 National Youth Competition.

Garcia joins Jamal Fakir, Samy Masselot, Sebastien Planas, Damien Cardace and Julian Bousquet in the expanded squad.
