Last Updated: 02/12/15 3:23pm
England have confirmed their opponents for next year's autumn internationals which begin against South Africa at Twickenham on November 12.
Eddie Jones' team will play four fixtures against southern hemisphere opposition including Fiji and Australia, who were drawn in the same pool as England at this year's Rugby World Cup.
After facing the Boks, England play Fiji on November 19 before World Cup semi-finalists Argentina return to Twickenham a week later.
England bring the curtain down on the international season on December 3 against the Wallabies, who they also play in a three-Test series in June.
All four Tests will be broadcast live on Sky Sports.
England's Women will also be in action. Simon Middleton's side face Six Nations rivals France and Ireland in a five-day period before a Twickenham date with Canada, who they defeated in the 2014 World Cup final.
Speaking to Sky Sports News HQ, England and Harlequins full-back Mike Brown said he was relishing the chance to take on some of the world's elite on home soil.
"It's very exciting for everyone involved in the game when you see the Old Mutual Wealth Series opponents England will be facing next year," he said.
