15 Mike Brown Given a few chances to run with the ball in hand, and looked to come into the line when on the attack. 6.5/10
14 Marland Yarde Looked lively out on his wing and made some telling breaks. Took his try Brilliantly. 8/10
13 Henry Slade A few flashes of brilliance, especially his superb dummy and perfectly weighted knock through for May’s try. 7/10
12 Alex Lozowski He ran beautifully to open up space for Yarde’s try. A really nice player to watch. 7/10
11 Jonny May Ran well when he got the ball and came in-field looking for work, but he didn’t chase kicks hard enough. Showed good awareness to dot down Slades knock through 7/10
10 George Ford Looked like Englands’ general as he controlled play around the park and answered his critics by landing most of his kicks in a hostile atmosphere as well as scoring a try. 9/10
9 Danny Care Decent box-kicking and snappy distribution from the playmaker. 7/10
8 Nathan Hughes The birthday boy was a monster but made a few basic errors. 7/10
7 Tom Curry The youngest player to play for England since 1927. He looked lightweight in the early stages but made his presence felt as the game went on with a few monstrous tackles. 8/10
6 Mark Wilson Carried well and made some monster hits. The Cumbrian left everything out there for his country. 8/10
5 Charlie Ewels Dominated. We see why everybody is excited about the Bath lock now! 7/10
4 Joe Launchbury A composed presence in the engine room and fiercely physical at the contact area. Still not sure why he isn’t with the Lions. 7.5/10
3 Harry Williams Impressed on debut, engaging in a huge battle up front. The Exeter prop made 11 tackles in the first half alone. 8/10
2 Dylan Hartley (c) The England captain won’t be satisfied with his performance, almost costing his side the game with a knock-on in the closing stages. 6/10
1 Ellis Genge A tank in the close quarter exchanges, continuing a wonderful season. He was immense. 7.5/10
