The Rugby Football Union plans to re-arrange its fixture list to ensure that England play the All Blacks in November.

According to Sky Sports, the world's top two ranked teams could meet at Twickenham on 4 November.

England would then play Argentina, Australia and Samoa over the next three Saturdays, with the All Blacks taking on France, Scotland and Wales.

England have currently won a record-equalling 18 consecutive Tests, but have not played New Zealand in that streak.
