Australian rugby union officials are reportedly planning to stage a Bledisloe Cup clash in England next year.

The ARU and England's Rugby Football Union are believed to have held preliminary talks over hiring Twickenham for a trans-Tasman Test, News Limited reports.

Following swift ticket sales for the fourth Bledisloe to be held in Hong Kong on November 1, ARU chief executive John O'Neill this week alluded to another showcase Test in the works.

"The interest from all over the world in the fact that the All Blacks and Wallabies are playing in Asia is really significant, and it won't be the last time," O'Neill told News Limited.

"We may even play All Blacks and the Wallabies at Twickenham, that's not out of the question."

A Twickenham Test has the potential windfall for all three parties, with gate takings worth an estimated $10 million.
