England squad player ratings (Best to worst):
#1. Freddie Steward – 9.5 out of 10
What an Autumn. Won back-to-back player of the match awards against Australia and South Africa as he dominated the skies. An incredible impact.
#2. Courtney Lawes – 9 out of 10
Tried to lead by example with his non-stop work rate. An England legend.
#3. Marcus Smith – 8.5 out of 10
Fear? What’s fear? For better as the series went on and played his hand perfectly against the world champions before delivering the match-winning penalty.
#4. Henry Slade – 8.5 out of 10
Out of this world. Had the courage to take matters into his own hands with a number of standout performances.
#5. Maro Itoje – 8 out of 10
Stood toe to to toe with the big Wallabies and Springbok forwards and emerged with his reputation enhanced once again.
