England line up All Blacks 2017 showdown

  • But his Kiwi counterpart Steve Tew said it is'highly unlikely the match will happen in 2017

The report suggested the match could be worth an extra $1.75m to New Zealand than the Barbarians fixture if Kiwi bosses hold firm on their revenue-sharing demands.

The All Blacks have a hectic year including hosting the British and Irish Lions, but have been keen on a fourth match on their end of year tour north.

England could entertain world champions New Zealand at Twickenham on November 4th, if the RFU can come to terms with the NZRU.

Yet in a frustrating quirk of the global schedule, the game's two in-form teams are not now scheduled to meet until late 2018, with the All Blacks in negotiations to secure a match against the Barbarians in November.

England and New Zealand haven't played each other since November of 2014, when the All Blacks ran out narrow winners by a score of 21-24 at Twickenham.

A number of options were on the table for the November 4 Test, with Frances, Wales and Scotland already lined up for the subsequent three weeks.

If England topple Ireland in Dublin on St Patrick's Day, they will have become the sixth team to secure back-to-back Grand Slams and will eclipse the All Blacks' record of 18 consecutive Test victories.

Now the VR experiences won't be available to download (though they will be downloadable at some point later in 2017) so those who want to give these new experiences a try will need to do one of two things.

"If there is an opportunity for us to play NZ before then - ie this year - then we will pursue that opportunity".

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.

O2 head of sponsorship Gareth Griffiths said: "We believe in live, and using the latest VR technology we can showcase our live experiences to O2 customers in our stores across the country".

"We played a slightly different style of footy to what we perhaps got throughout the rest of the year back home".

All Blacks coach Steve Hansen admitted earlier in the week that "people are desperate for England and the All Blacks to play". The drills include tackling, scrummaging, and kicking, and players are scored on their performance through an interactive points-based system to see how they stack up to the players.
