England Head Coach Stuart Lancaster said: “The 2012 QBE Internationals are living up to expectations. We have gone head to head with the best teams in the Southern Hemisphere at Twickenham.  In the process, we have learnt a lot about our players and what is required to perform at the very top level of international rugby. We are looking forward to meeting Australia and New Zealand again next November and welcoming Argentina to Twickenham for the first time since 2009.”

Richard Pryce, Deputy Chief Executive Officer, European Operations, QBE Insurance Group, commented: “As the inaugural QBE Internationals come to a close, we’re delighted that next year’s fixtures will again give fans the chance to see England compete against some of the world’s best players.  We’re sure supporters will be excited about the prospect of watching three competitive test matches at the home of England Rugby next November.”
