The English Rugby Football Union (RFU) on Wednesday confirmed England's Test schedule for next year, with encounters against South Africa and New Zealand included in the roster.
He's ready, Eddie Jones, to try and beat the All Blacks as England coach in November next year.
Reigning back-to-back World Cup champions New Zealand have held the No1 ranking since for eight years, losing just once to England in 15 meetings since 2003.
Due to a quirk of the worldwide fixture list, the rivals met five times in one year but have not clashed since 2014 - a frustrating hiatus that led to aborted attempts to arrange a match this autumn.
"It is a pleasure to play against England at this important period of time just 10 months ahead of the opening of Rugby World Cup 2019", said Brave Blossoms coach Jamie Joseph, who took over from current England coach Eddie Jones.
Australia has lost its last four Tests against England, including a three-Test series at home previous year, and will meet England in the 2017 Spring Tour.
Instead, the All Blacks will take on the Barbarians to kick off their end-of-year tour.
Therefore Jones is targeting revenge in their next showdown, in addition to victories against South Africa in the first match of the series on November 3, before facing Japan on November 17 and Australia on November 24.
"Over the next yeat we need to continue to develop a bulletproof side, that can find ways to win in matches, and we will have to work hard and be smart in what we do to bridge the gap between us and the All Blacks".
The big three of southern hemisphere rugby will be visiting Twickenham, as well as World Cup hosts Japan.
