LONDON (AFP) - England will play Tests in Auckland, Dunedin and Hamilton when they tour New Zealand next year, the Rugby Football Union announced yesterday.

The series starts at the All Blacks' Eden Park fortress on June 7, continues at Forsyth Barr Stadium seven days later and concludes at Waikato Stadium on June 21.

England's tour also includes a midweek match against seven-time Super Rugby champions Crusaders in Christchurch on June 17.

The 2015 World Cup hosts England will travel to New Zealand looking to turn the table on the world champions following last month's loss at Twickenham in a gripping encounter.
