Red Roses to face New Zealand at Twickenham

Home » Red Roses to face New Zealand at Twickenham

England will play world champions New Zealand at Twickenham Stadium in September in preparation for October’s WXV 1 tournament.

John Mitchell’s side beat the Black Ferns to clinch the inaugural WXV 1 title on New Zealand soil when the sides last met in November.

The match will take place on 14 September at 15:00 BST and will be their first at Twickenham since 2012, when England won 32-23.

England will also take on France seven days earlier at Gloucester Rugby’s Kingsholm Stadium (15:00).

The Red Roses thrashed France 42-21 in April to win a sixth consecutive Women’s Six Nations title.

“We want to host and play against the best sides in the world before the 2025 Rugby World Cup,” said England captain Marlie Packer.

“Our last two games at Twickenham have resulted in the best two crowds ever recorded in women’s rugby, we want more.

“Playing the Black Ferns at the home of English Rugby is an unbelievable opportunity that doesn’t come around all too often.”

England last played at Twickenham in April, when 48,778 supporters watched them beat Ireland 88-10 in the Six Nations.
