Ireland player ratings vs Italy: Who shone and who flopped in Dublin?

5 Devin Toner: Put in some crunching hits and was a good option for Best at the lineout. 7/10

4 Iain Henderson: Another fine performance. 7/10

3 Tadhg Furlong: Forced off with a suspected hamstring injury after just three minutes. N/A

2 Rory Best (c): Was perfect in the set piece and showed some good hands when Ireland was on the front foot and got a deserved first Test try in five years. 8.5/10

1 Jack McGrath: Came in for Cian Healey and didn’t put a foot wrong. Joe Schmidt has a tough selection between these two premier looseheads in two weeks time when Ireland face Wales. 7/10
