The Rugby Football Union have revealed that England will play three test matches beginning on August 15, including two at Twickenham Stadium in their warm up for the Rugby World Cup.

The warm up matches will see England take on France and Ireland at home, and then travel away to play France.

England's two home games will be shown live on Sky Sports.

England Head Coach Stuart Lancaster said: "These Test matches will be vital in our preparations for the World Cup."

"To have two Internationals at Twickenham Stadium, in front of our passionate fans, will be something to look forward to and we are grateful to the French and Irish unions for helping us arrange these fixtures so soon after the draw."

Fixtures for the 2015 RWC warm up matches:

August 15 - England v France
