England reportedly want to play the All Blacks in November and a revenue‑sharing move could earn New Zealand Rugby more than $5 million for the London showdown.

The All Blacks have confirmed tests against France on November 11 in Paris, followed by Scotland and Wales.

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.

The Daily Mail reported that England were eager to replace a planned clash between the All Blacks and British Barbarians with a test at Twickenham on November 4.

The match would be a huge money‑spinner and would settle the current debate around who is the best team in the world.

England are dominating the northern hemisphere and have equalled the All Blacks' world record of 18 consecutive tier one test wins.
