Lure of the All Blacks hits Jones

The match is not a formal part of the £225m agreement with the RFU.

Jones had stated after last summer's tour to Australia that his intention is to rest those players who had participated in the looming British and Irish Lions tour to New Zealand for the entire 2017 autumn series, but the lure of facing the All Blacks appears to have altered his thinking.

England coach Eddie Jones has reportedly backed an approach to New Zealand Rugby to explore the possibility of a match between the world heavyweights on November 4, when the All Blacks are due to play the Barbarians.

England and New Zealand played six Tests against each other between the 2011 and 2015 World Cups, whereas they are only scheduled to meet once in the current four-year cycle.

Now that England has equalled the test record there are talks of arranging a match as England aren't scheduled to play against New Zealand until November 2018. We've already got Scotland, France and Wales on the end-of-year tour'.

Yet any Test, falling outside of World Rugby's worldwide window, will require the RFU to negotiate the release of their players from the UK Aviva Premiership. "We will need to understand the details of the proposal before responding", read a statement issued by Premiership Rugby.

Then Jose Gonzalez jumped into the driver's seat and took off in the ambulance, said FDNY Commissioner Daniel Nigro said. Of course, you know, I love her", said Arroyo's son Edgar, 22. "Tonight's tragedy in the Bronx is terrible ", he said.

"I hope the experience gives rugby fans and novices alike an insight in to the way we train and the amount of hard work that is involved in being an global rugby player".

Victory over Ireland would see the champions defend the grand slam and surpass the All Blacks' record of 18 straight Test wins, setting the scene for a mouth-watering collision against Steve Hansen's men.

The match could take place if various obstacles, such as the distribution of match-day revenues, can be overcome, while the New Zealand Rugby Union will also demand a significant share of the match-day revenues before committing to the fixture.

"We got to that stage previous year where we couldn't continue so if they're able to do it then well done", Read said.

Jones replied by expressing his wariness of Hansen's approval, noting that compliments from an All Blacks coach are akin to fairytale predator the Big Bad Wolf stalking Little Red Riding Hood. He said: 'People are desperate for England and the All Blacks to play.
