“It’s great to have been able to bring in four additional players to the squad for this weekend’s game against France,” Richards said.
“I’m really pleased that Keara and Courtney have both recovered, have come back into the squad and are now in contention to debut on Saturday.
“Zoe has been a standout performer for Leeds in both the Betfred Women’s Challenge Cup and opening rounds of the Betfred Women’s Super League. I always say that if people are playing well they will be brought into the set-up and Zoe is proof of that.
“This weekend’s game is massive in terms of seeing where we are as a squad and building towards the Rugby League World Cup later this year.
“I’m hoping we see the England fans come out in force to get behind all three teams this weekend.”
Hornby, Player of the Match in the recent Betfred Women’s Challenge Cup Final, is in line to make her international debut against France, while Bennett and Winfield-Hill are also out to earn their first England caps this weekend having missed the Wales match due to illness.
Beevers made her debut aged 17 against France four years ago.
