England player ratings vs Barbarians:
15. Simon Hammersley: Has so much pace. Finished off a try straight from the Barbarians handbook. Sale Sharks fans will be excited to see him in a blue shirt next season! 7.5/10
14. Piers O’Connor: A quieter performance than O’Conor would have liked, with not too much of England’s attacking success coming when they moved the ball to the right wing. 6/10
13. Joe Marchant: What a performance. Beat 12 defenders and . made 82 metres with his twinkle toes. A genuine contender to be a World Cup bolter for England. 8/10
12. Johnny Williams: The centre is too good to play in the Championship next season. Made more metres than anyone else in a white shirt and took his try well. 8/10
11. Joshua Bassett: Opened the scoring with a superb finish. However, he was also comfortably burnt by the considerable speed of Filipo Nakosi. 7.5/10
