England to tackle Argentina, Australia and Samoa in 2017 autumn internationals

England will play three Tests in November next year - including another Twickenham visit by Australia.

The Rugby Football Union has announced games against Argentina on November 11, Australia seven days later, and then Samoa on November 25.

England beat Australia four times this year, including a 3-0 Test series whitewash Down Under.

Both Australia and Argentina were on this season's autumn schedule, when England extended their winning run to 14 Tests.

All games in the Old Mutual Wealth Series will kick off at 2.30pm.

England head coach Eddie Jones said: " These block of matches are an important step in our preparations for the 2019 Rugby World Cup in Japan, and we look forward to playing in the 2017 series against three tough opponents in Argentina, Australia and Samoa."

England Women, meanwhile, face three Tests against Canada next autumn, finishing the series at Twickenham on November 25 after the Samoa match has finished.
