England will be hosting World Champions South Africa and Australia in their November series fixture next year.

Following the travel and logistical restrictions, England along with the other Six Nations side cancelled their traditional November series schedule with the Southern Hemisphere teams this year and replaced it with the eight-team Autumn Nations Cup competition which Eddie Jones' side went on to win defeating France in the final.

The red rose will start their autumn series next year with a clash against emerging nations on 6th November following which they will take on Australia on 13th November.

The final fixture will see England facing South Africa for the first time since they battled out in the World Cup final in Japan last year on 20th November.

"These will be some good games of rugby and tough tests for us as we work to improve as a team," said Jones.

"South Africa are world champions and we'll be looking to benchmark ourselves against them.

"Australia are rapidly improving, have a lot of new talent coming through and good coaches like Dave Rennie and Scott Wisemantel, who we know well.

"We've not had the chance to play southern hemisphere teams this year so it will be a good chance to see where we are up to and hopefully some great rugby for our supporters to enjoy."
