The Rugby Football Union has unveiled the schedule for the autumn international for the England Women to be played in November.

The Red Rose team will begin the 2018 Quilter Internationals series with a clash against the USA Women at Allianz Park on 9th November before facing Canada on 18th November at Castle Park in Doncaster.

The final game of their campaign will be against their Six Nations rivals Ireland that will be played at Twickenham Stadium on 24th November.

England Women head coach Simon Middleton said the squad is raring to take the field during the autumn internationals against USA, Canada and Ireland.

"With no summer tour this year, the Quilter Internationals cannot come soon enough. The squad are raring to go and we couldn't wish for a better start than against the USA.

"They are an international team on the rise, evidenced by their performance in the semi-final of last year's Women's Rugby World Cup.

"Like us, Canada and Ireland will be looking forward to continuing their evolution with new squads and coaching staff in place.

"We look forward to returning to Allianz Park for our opening game and are really excited to host a first women's international in Yorkshire before returning to Twickenham which is always a great occasion."
