"We now have a great target ahead of us to try to get a result at Twickenham when we open the defence of our RBS Six Nations title against England next year," said Ruddock. "I remember we went very close two years ago and hopefully we can build on our recent success and go one better next February.
"England will be gunning for revenge as they try to reestablish themselves as the top team in the northern hemisphere. And we must not forget they are still the reigning World Champions.
"We have used the word 'exciting' a lot this season and our opening fixture in next season's Championship certainly falls into that category.
"There is a lot of water to go under the bridge before we go to Twickenham and before we can even start to think about our title defence we have to focus on some very big Autumn Tests against the superpowers of the southern hemisphere.
"If we can perform well against South Africa and Australia, we should have some confidence to take with us to Twickenham.
"Having won in Argentina last summer, and three times on the road in the championship this year, means that playing away from home is not as daunting as it used to be. Our away support has been first class this season and I'm sure that will continue at Twickenham.
"The real bonus next season is that we get to play three games at the Millennilum Stadium. If the support and the atmosphere are anything like they were in Cardiff for our wins over England and Ireland this season then we will take a bit of beating."
