This will be the first meeting between England and New Zealand at Twickenham since 2014, and there is simply no bigger challenge in world rugby than taking on the reigning world champions.
The All Blacks have an impressive record at Twickenham, having won 17 of their 22 matches against England. Their last meeting at the Home of England Rugby in 2014 saw New Zealand claim a narrow 24-21 victory in a very tight encounter. Of course, few English fans will have forgotten the last time England beat New Zealand…a magnificent performance in 2012 when England romped home with a 38-21 win. Can the men in white repeat this feat in 2018?

England v New Zealand 38-21
1 December 2012
There was something in the air that day at Twickenham as England welcomed the 2011 Rugby World Cup winners. From the raucous rendition of the national anthem to the crowd drowning out the Haka with a cacophony of noise, Twickenham was a cauldron of excitement.
After 42 minutes Owen Farrell had kicked England into a sensational 15-0 lead only for the home team to concede two converted tries in the space of four minutes. It was then that England fans were sent into frenzied excitement. In the space of eight magnificent minutes, Brad Barritt, Chris Ashton and Manu Tuilagi all crossed the tryline for England. Despite a late Julian Savea try for New Zealand, England held firm and secured their first win over the All Blacks in nine years and only their 7th in history.
Manu Tuilagi was nothing short of spectacular and winger Chris Ashton was going through a try scoring "Ash Splash" purple patch.
England v New Zealand 31-28
9 November 2002
At this stage, England were on a mission to become number one team in the world ahead of the Rugby World Cup in 2003. They had not beaten New Zealand since 1993 and with an opposition team filled with stars like Jonah Lomu, Tana Umaga, Doug Howlett and Carlos Spencer not many expected an English victory.
The match was tight, physical and ultimately decided by two key moments created by one man – the legendary Jonny Wilkinson. In a truly devastating man of the match performance, Wilkinson ended the day with a full house (scoring a try, penalty, conversion and drop goal). His try was an awesome solo effort, as he chipped over the All Black defence and collected the ball to score. Equally punishing was his sublime pick-up from a New Zealand knock on in midfield, before slipping the ball to Ben Cohen who, at full tilt, scythed his way through the New Zealand defence to add five points.
England were 31-14 up and, despite conceding late tries to Danny Lee and Jonah Lomu, they held on for a truly thrilling victory.
