Eddie Jones to return to Twickenham as England face Japan in November

England will face Eddie Jones’ Japan side in the forth Autumn test in November.

This test match will be Eddie Jones’ first match against England since his departure in 2022 following a disastrous Autumn Nations Series that year.

England and Japan is quickly becoming a modern day rugby rivalry. The two sides last met in the World Cup, as England recorded a 34-12 win over the Brave Blossoms.

They have also met four times at Twickenham in the past-with England winning the last meeting at HQ 52-13.

The fixture against Eddie Jones’ new team will round off a tough Autumn Nations Series for England, as they also take on rugby heavyweights New Zealand, Australia and reigning world champions South Africa.
