England player ratings vs South Africa as Eddie Jones men start their autumn internationals with a narrow 12-11 victory against the Springboks at Twickenham.
England player ratings vs South Africa:
Fullback: Elliot Daly – Played more like a winger than fullback and didn’t look comfortable taking the ball in the air. However, he slotted a wonderful penalty and cleared his lines with the boot superbly all afternoon. 7/10
Winger: Jack Nowell – It was great to see the Exeter man back in an England shirt, but a shame to see so little of him on the front foot. Didn’t do much wrong but was replaced by Chris Ashton after 65 minutes. 6.5/10
Centre: Henry Slade – Saved a certain try in the first half but was unable to make significant impact on the game. 6/10
Centre: Ben Te’o – Felt sorry for him. Looked off the pace, having played just 28 minutes this season, but he will get better! 6/10
Winger: Jonny May – Limited opportunities to show his electric pace but was still always England’s greatest threat. One of the worlds best wingers. 7.5/10
