England v New Zealand Dan Carter

First up: England v New Zealand

England will play four Test matches in November 2014 at Twickenham Stadium against New Zealand, South Africa, Samoa and Australia.

The matches will be England's last opportunity to face Southern Hemisphere opposition ahead of the Rugby World Cup on home soil the following year.

Prior to that England will play three Test matches in New Zealand in June 2014.

"To be able to take on these teams in successive weeks is ideal preparation for the World Cup and will tell us a lot about where we are one year out," said England head coach Stuart Lancaster.

"All four are tough opponents and we are looking forward to the challenge."

The schedule is subject to final International Rugby Board approval.

Saturday, November 8: England v New Zealand

Saturday, November 15: England v South Africa

Saturday, November 22: England v Samoa

Saturday, November 29: England v Australia
