This will be the first time that England has played a Test match at St James' Park in Newcastle, although the venue did play host to the 2015 Rugby World Cup and will stage the 2018-19 European club rugby finals as a double-header. As part of the Rugby World Cup warm-ups, England will also face Wales and Ireland at the home of England Rugby, Twickenham Stadium.

"These internationals will be extremely important to the squad's final preparations before we head out to Japan. It is great news to be able to take England to another part of the country and Newcastle will be fantastic hosts like they were for the matches here in 2015."
