England will play four Tests at Twickenham in November 2014, under a year from the start of the 2015 Rugby World Cup.

Stuart Lancaster's men will run out in three Tests this November but they have added a further Test for 2014 and alongside Australia, South Africa and New Zealand, England will also face Samoa.

And England boss Lancaster is hopeful the quartet of Tests will get his side in the right frame of mind a year out from the World Cup. He said: "To be able to take on these teams in successive weeks is ideal preparation for the World Cup and will tell us a lot about where we are one year out. All four are tough opponents and we are looking forward to the challenge."

England's 2014 autumn Tests:

November 8, England v New Zealand
November 15, England v South Africa
November 22, England v Samoa
November 29, England v Australia
