Rematch: England vs South Africa at Twickenham
By Raga House | Tue 08 Dec, 2020 14:42

England will play three Test matches at Twickenham Stadium in November 2021, which includes a 2019 Rugby World Cup final rematch with South Africa.

Eddie Jones and the squad will begin their campaign on November 6 next year against an emerging nation in rugby, with the exact opposite to be confirmed at a later date.

The following weekend Australia head to south-west London in a repeat of last year’s Rugby World Cup quarter-final which England won 40-16. It will be the eighth time England have faced Australia under head coach Jones and the fourth time on home soil.

In the final match of the series, England will play South Africa on November 20 in what will be the first meeting between the sides since the Rugby World Cup final. This also sees the Springboks back at Twickenham Stadium for the first time since 2018, England edging that game 12-11.

“These will be some good games of rugby and tough tests for us as we work to improve ourselves as a team,” said Jones.

“South Africa are world champions and we’ll be looking to benchmark ourselves against them.

“Australia are rapidly improving, have a lot of new talent coming through and good coaches like Dave Rennie and Scott Wisemantel, who we know well.

“We’ve not had the chance to play southern hemisphere teams this year, so it will be a good chance to see where we are up to and hopefully some great rugby for our supporters to enjoy.”

Kick-off times and broadcast details will be confirmed in due course.
