Tonga has been confirmed as the fourth opponent that England will host at Twickenham Stadium in autumn 2020 for the Quilter November internationals.


England will play Tonga, their opening pool opponents in Japan last year, on Saturday 21 November, kick off 15:15. This will be the fourth time the two sides have faced each other and the first time outside of a Rugby World Cup. England have won the previous three encounters.

Eddie Jones’ squad will begin its Quilter International campaign against New Zealand on 7 November with the match kick-off now confirmed at 17:30. The All Blacks last visited the home of England Rugby in 2018.

Seven days later Argentina, England’s pool opponents in Japan who were defeated 39-10 in Tokyo, head to south west London. This match will kick off at 20:00.

Following the match against Tonga, England will end its Quilter Internationals on 28 November versus Australia, kick off 15:15.

Yesterday Eddie Jones recalled 25 players for three days of training in Oxford this week ahead of England’s next Guinness Six Nations match against Wales at Twickenham Stadium on Saturday 7 March.

In addition, apprentice Alex Mitchell will join up with the squad and George Furbank will be in camp for rehabilitation. Mako Vunipola and Luke Cowan-Dickie are not included for family reasons.
