England to host All Blacks in 2018 autumn internationals

The All Blacks put aside off-field drama to win the opening Bledisloe

The All Blacks put aside off-field drama to win the opening Bledisloe

It might be 14 months away but the official countdown to the All Blacks' next rugby test against England can officially begin.

The only previous meeting between the two sides was at the inaugural World Cup in 1987 when England claimed a 60-7 win over the Brave Blossoms in Sydney.

England captain Dylan Hartley celebrates winning the Calcutta Cup against Scotland at Twickenham in March.

New Zealand and England share the record for most consecutive Test wins (18), having notched the mark in the past year, runs that sparked speculation they would try and organise a clash in November this year, one that would surely be well-attended and watched across the world.

After the encounter with the All Blacks, England will go on to face Jones's old sides Japan on November 17 and Australia on November 24.

"The series will give us a really good indicator of where we are as a squad, a year out from the Rugby World Cup".

"Over the next year we need to continue to develop a bulletproof side, that can find ways to win in matches, and we will have to work hard and be smart in what we do to bridge the gap between us and the All Blacks".

Meanwhile the All Blacks will grace Twickenham on November 5, to play the Barbarians, before completing their end-of-year tour against France, Scotland and Wales.

It is about as punishing a schedule as England could have put together less than a year out from the World Cup and Jones wants his team to emerge from it as the world's No 1 team.
