Rugby World Cup 2015: Full fixture list for the tournament

England will play three of their pool matches at Twickenham

England will play three of their 2015 Rugby World Cup pool matches at Twickenham, including the opening game against likely Oceania qualifiers Fiji.

Stuart Lancaster's men will also take on Wales and Australia at their traditional home before heading north to play the final Pool A qualifier at Manchester City's Etihad Stadium.

Wales will play their games against the two qualifiers at the Millennium Stadium but their pivotal fixtures against England and Australia will both be at Twickenham.

England and Ireland have avoided any midweek fixtures. Wales, Scotland, Australia, South Africa and New Zealand will have to handle a short turnaround between matches during the pool phase.

Scotland open with a midweek game but will be close to home when they take on South Africa and Samoa, with the fixtures scheduled for Newcastle's St James' Park.

Ireland are the only home nation to be given a pool fixture at the Olympic Stadium, where they will play Italy, and they take on France at the Millennium Stadium.

Elsewhere, New Zealand open the defence of their title against Argentina at Wembley.
