The big guns are coming to town.
England and the All Blacks are set to go head-to-head next year for the first time under Eddie Jones.
The number one and number two ranked teams in the world are yet to face each other during this Rugby World Cup cycle, but will finally clash on November 10. The last took each other on back in 2014.
Eddie Jones’ side will take on South Africa (November 3), New Zealand (November 10), Japan (November 17) and Australia (November 24).
“The 2018 Old Mutual Wealth Series is incredibly important for England as we build towards the Rugby World Cup in 2019,” said Jones.
“We want to win that series 4-0 and we will need to play extremely well to beat four very good teams over a four-week period.
“The series will give us a really good indicator of where we are as a squad, a year out from the Rugby World Cup, and gives us a real focus on what we have to do over the next 12 months to be ready for that series and win.”
