England player ratings vs Ireland: Who starred and who flopped at Twickenham?!

1-Mako Vunipola: Often play far more minutes but still made 15 carries in 53 minutes. Cannot avoid blame for scrum problems. 6/10

2-Dylan Hartley: The skipper returned to the side today but did little to inspire his troops with discipline again an issue. 5.5/10

3-Kyle Sinckler: He put in a lot effort and offered more in attack than some of the backs. Not much to complain about. 7/10

4-Maro Itoje: Second season syndrome well and truly in motion.The lock got smashed back every time he carried today and continued to give away penalties. 5.5/10

5-George Kruis: Didn’t really take his chance back in the starting XV. 5/10

6-Chris Robshaw: As always put in a workmanlike display but was mostly ineffective. 6/10

7-James Haskell: The flanker brought energy to the battle at the breakdown but he was ultimately outgunned by the superior Irish back-row. 6.5/10

8-Sam Simmonds: ‘Oh- sam Simmonds is on the pitch’ is a tweet I saw. Unfortunately, he looked too small for a number eight at Test level as he wasn’t able to get over the gain line and drive England forward. 6/10
