#1. Grant Gilchrist (Scotland)

Planet Rugby 2/10: “Sent off for a high and dangerous tackle on Anthony Jelonch from a kick-off. He could have easily done better, poor technique and poor execution..”

The Offside Line 3/10: “Unlucky to pick up a [wholly legitimat] red card in seventh minute, careless rather than reckless.”

Rugby Pass 1/10: “Close to tears as he was sent off on seven minutes for a high shot on Jelonch.”


#2. Bundee Aki (Ireland)

Balls 5/10: “The Italians took advantage of a defensive weakness in the 13 channel (5 missed tackles).”

Rugby pass 6/10: “As pointed out by Jerry Flannery in RTE’s analysis, the Italians successfully targeted and exploited the 13 channel between the Connachtman and Lowe on the left wing. Fumbled a try that may well have settled the contest with 20 or so minutes to go. A truly mixed bag of a performance.”

Planet Rugby 6/10: “Great with the ball, not so without.”
