Rob Burrow says that England's rugby league squad is really gelling.

Rob Burrow has said that members of England's rugby league squad are "really close mates" despite playing for different clubs.

Differences between players from Leeds Rhinos and St Helens were blamed for England's lacklustre performance at the 2008 World Cup.

The Rhinos half-back told Sky Sports News: "We soon put the club thing to bed, we're all England now.

"Many of the players you batter week in, week out are now our teammates so we're focusing on team England.

"Everybody is having a great time. We're working and learning so much but in the off time we're really gelling and that's only going to help England."

England take on France in the Autumn Internationals this afternoon.
