England v New Zealand to be broadcast on BBC

All three of England’s international series matches against New Zealand will be broadcast live on BBC Television.

The series, which features an historic match at the Olympic Stadium in London, will be the first time the two nations have played on English soil since the 2013 Rugby League World Cup semi-final at Wembley Stadium, when the Kiwis completed a memorable last-minute victory.

The KC Stadium in Hull will host the opening game on Sunday November 1 as England look to get the series off to the perfect start live on BBC Two (from 4.30pm).

On Saturday November 7, history will be made as the two teams play the first ever Rugby League game at Olympic Stadium in front of the BBC One cameras (from 2.00pm).

The final game of the series at DW Stadium in Wigan will be live on BBC One (from 12.45pm) in what could be the series decider.

New Zealand go into the series as the world’s No 1 ranked nation following their Anzac Day Test victory over Australia earlier this year and three epic internationals are guaranteed.

The schedule for the autumn international series against New Zealand is as follows:

Sunday November 1 – New Zealand (KC Stadium, Hull – BBC Two, 5.00pm kick-off)

Saturday November 7 – New Zealand (Olympic Stadium, London – BBC One, 2.30pm kick-off)

Saturday November 14 – New Zealand (DW Stadium, Wigan – BBC One, 1.00pm kick-off)
