England player ratings vs South Africa: Who was your man of the match?

Lock: Maro Itoje –  Got himself a stupid yellow card for not rolling away in the first half but made an eye-catching break in the second half. A performance full of highs and lows. 6.5/10

Lock: George Kruis – His execution wasn’t always perfect but his endeavour couldn’t be faulted. 6.5/10

Flanker: Brad Shields – Nothing special. Looked naive at times and killed an impressive England attack with an audacious offload attempt  5.5/10

Flanker: Tom Curry – Missed a number of tackles in the opening 40 before hobbling off shortly after the break. 5.5/10

Number 8: Mark Wilson – Played out of his usual position, the Newcastle Falcons back-rower give it absolutely everything, carrying relentlessly and tackling everything that moves. Did himself proud on his first start at Twickenham. Our man of the match. 8.5/10
