Nafeza 2 world - The agreement means Wane's side now have three Tests to look forward to in 2024. The men's and women's teams both face France in a double header in Toulouse on Saturday, 29 June.

Having missed out on a World Cup final place in 2022, England's men defeated France 64-0 in Warrington in a mid-season international last April before completing 2023 with a 3-0 series victory over Tonga.

Wane said: "This is the positive news we've been waiting for. We face a tough challenge in France this month and we'll prepare for that in the knowledge that we’ll have another crack at Samoa at the end of the season. That's three big games to give us a focus for the rest of the year."

Both England's men's and women's teams will tour Australia in 2025.

New Zealand and Australia have also agreed to visit England in consecutive years after the 2026 World Cup.
