England target the All Blacks and their number one spot

A strong English contingent featured as the British and Irish Lions earned a 1-1 series draw against the All Blacks earlier this year, and Jones will have the chance to pit his wits against coaching counterpart Steve Hansen when the sides meet at Twickenham on November 10, 2018.

The All Blacks came out on top on all four occassions when the teams met in 2014.

The old rivals are now ranked one and two in the world, and it will be the first test between them in four years, since the All Blacks won 24-21 at Twickenham in 2014.

Japan will play England for the just the second time in a full test match on November 17, 2018, the Japan Rugby Football Union announced Wednesday. 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 will open their four-match campaign against South Africa, tackle the All Blacks and then play Japan for the first time at Twickenham before rounding off the series against Australia.

November 2018 will be a tough month with games against top-ranked New Zealand and second-ranked England scheduled.

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.

Speaking after the fixtures announcement, head coach Jones said: 'The 2018 Old Mutual Wealth Series is incredibly important for England as we build towards the Rugby World Cup in 2019.

"Our ambition is to be the number one team in the world going into the 2019 Rugby World Cup in Japan".

"Over the next year we need to continue to develop a bulletproof side, that can find ways to win in matches".
