Quilter Int England to play historic 1st Test in Newcastle
April 29 2019
England will play a home Test match in Newcastle for the first time as the part of the international series. Eddie Jones’ side will play four warm up matches as part of their final preparations before the team depart for Japan. England’s 2019 Quilter Internationals see them take on Wales (Sunday 11 August, KO 14:00) and Ireland (Saturday 24 August, KO 15:00) at Twickenham Stadium before heading to the 52,345-capacity St James’ Park in Newcastle for their final warm up match against Italy (Friday 6 September; 19:45) before the squad flies to Tokyo.
Tickets for the 2019 Quilter Internationals are now on sale (available from £25) with two fixtures at Twickenham Stadium,
as well as one at St James' Park.
Preparations will also see England travel to Cardiff for an away fixture against Wales (Saturday 17 August, KO TBC).
This will be the first England fixture in Newcastle and the first time a match featuring England has taken place outside of Twickenham since the team’s final Rugby World Cup 2015 pool fixture against Uruguay which was held at Manchester City’s stadium.
All England home matches will be broadcast live on Sky Sports
