England announce Twickenham Test with New Zealand
Thursday 10 November 2011
World champions New Zealand will feature among England's autumn Test opponents at Twickenham next year.
The All Blacks, World Cup winners on home soil three weeks ago, will conclude the QBE Internationals series on December 1, 2012.
England, currently reeling from a miserable World Cup campaign on and off the pitch, face four Test matches in an autumn programme announced by the Rugby Football Union.
They start against Fiji on November 10, then host Australia seven days later before tacking South Africa on November 24 and finally New Zealand.
England's next game is their RBS 6 Nations opener against Scotland at Murrayfield on February 4, while the 2012 summer schedule sees a three-Test series against the Springboks in South Africa.
