New Zealand and England share the record for most consecutive Test wins (18), having notched the mark in the past year, runs that sparked speculation they would try and organise a clash in November this year, one that would surely be well-attended and watched across the world.

At the two sides last meeting in 2014, the All Blacks won 24-21 against England at Twickenham.

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.

Joseph's side will take on the All Blacks at home on November 3, 2018, at a venue to be decided.
