The RFU has struck a deal with BBC Sport which will see the broadcaster provide highlights coverage for all of England's Investec International fixtures until 2013.

Part of a series of new deals, BBC Sport also announced that they will be broadcasting all of Ireland, Scotland and Wales' Autumn Internationals this year.

The deals will include rights for TV, Radio and Online, HD and iPlayer.

Head of TV Sport, BBC Sport Philip Bernie spoke proudly of the announcement, saying: "We're delighted to have renewed our partnership with the WRU, IRFU and SRU, and with the RFU to show highlights of their matches.

"The Autumn Internationals continue to grow in intensity and importance as the Home Nations test themselves against the best of the Southern Hemisphere and take stock ahead of the forthcoming Six Nations Championship.
