Autumn International Series: Youth key to England - Darren Lockyer

Australian rugby league legend Darren Lockyer says England's young talent has had the chance to shine at the Autumn International Series, and their confidence will be boosted going into the 2013 Rugby League World Cup.

England face France in Sunday's tournament final after thrashing them 44-6 in Hull last weekend.

Lockyer retired last year having won a host of honours in the game, including the 2000 World Cup and four NRL titles with the Brisbane Broncos.
