Video: Steve McNamara: "We couldn't be in better shape"

England rugby league head coach Steve McNamara says that the nation are fully prepared ahead of the World Cup.

England rugby league head coach Steve McNamara believes that the nation are "ready to go" as they target success in the World Cup later this year.

The 41-year-old, who took charge of England in 2010, has also claimed that the decision to visit a high-altitude camp in South Africa last year will provide huge benefits.

"We couldn't play Australia or New Zealand last year so we used that year to prepare - we went to a high-altitude training camp in South Africa," said McNamara.

"We played a tournament at home, we trialled all our training venues and travel arrangements and we have got everything exactly where we want it so this year isn't a surprise. Everything is ready to go and we couldn't be in better shape."
