England to face New Zealand in three-match series in the autumn of 2018

Rugby League World Cup semi-finalists England will host New Zealand in a three match test series in Autumn 2018.

England will face the Kiwis for the first time since the narrow 16-17 loss in front of a sell-out crowd in the Four Nations 12 months ago and will be hoping for a repeat of the 2015 series, when captain Sean O’Loughlin led the team to a 2-1 series win.

Dates and venues for the Autumn series will be announced at 12pm tomorrow (22nd November) when tickets will also go on sale for all three matches.

England, who this week face Tonga in the World Cup semi-finals, will be looking for victory over a Kiwi side determined to hit back following a disappointing 2017 World Cup campaign.  

Members of ‘Our League’ will receive a £5 discount for all ticket categories when bought through the membership website or app.
