“A colossus in Marseille” – England’s five best players against Fiji

#1. Ben Earl

RUCK 8.5/10: “14 tackles. 11 carries. Simply awesome. Ben Earl was phenomenal against Fiji, and looked set to score the try of the tournament following his solo breakaway in the closing moments of the match. Quick over the break-down, as he worked tirelessly to secure the turnovers, and had the entire England side cheering in his recognised style. A 38th minute turnover took the wind out of the flying Fijian sails, and presented an astute rucking knowledge by goading in his opponents to go off their feet. One of, if not his best day in an England shirt.”

Planet Rugby 9/10: “Has been England’s best player in this tournament and was once again superb here. Magnificent in every facet.”

Evening Standard 9/10: “His transformation has been phenomenal. England’s man of the World Cup delivered again and he deserves all the plaudits that will come his way and more.”

Express 9/10: “Best game yet for England, everywhere at the breakdown. Storming late run brought late Farrell penalty.”
