    Japan will host the first ever Rugby World Cup in Asia and the ninth in the sports history.

    England boss Eddie Jones will lead side along with captain Owen Farrell as they hope to improve on an abysmal 2015 World Cup – which they hosted – after being knocked out in the Pool.

    The side had a strong summer with tests against the Barbarians, Wales, Ireland and Italy as they prepare for the world stage in Japan.

    Barbarians was a high-scoring win at 51-43 as well strong performances at home to Wales, Ireland and Italy would have benefited the camp despite a narrow loss at the Principality Stadium.
