Fly-half: Johnny Sexton (Ireland)
The fly-half brought his Ireland tally up to 62pointsnt and gave another masterful performance, outclassing his opposite number Elton Janties in the box-kicking duel and controlling things from start until his exit shortly before full-time.
Scrum-half: Will Genia (Australia)
Australia’s best. He got the Wallabies attack operating as well as it has all year while controlling the pace of play with some clever kicking at exactly the time it was required. Continuously kept the Wales line honest in sniffing out holes around the breakdown not only for himself but for his first phase runners as well. A superb performance summed up by the sublime assist for Coleman’s try.

Prop: Mako Vunipola (England)
Hates training, according to Jones, but loves playing. Made the hard yards with some strong carries, kept on tackling and showed good hands, too. Excellent performance – certainly did not look in need of a rest.
Hooker: Stuart McInally (Scotland)
Impeccable with his throwing and a couple of trademark carries which led to two tries and a good run out. Did his chances of becoming the Scots first choice hooker no harm at all.

Prop: Tadhg Furlong (Ireland)
The ‘Beast’ Tendei Mtawarira acknowledged in the build-up that the Wexford man is the best tighthead in the business in the northern hemisphere and he again locked down the Irish scrum. The Beast departed 15 minutes into the second half as Furlong continues to go from strength-to-strength.
