LIST: 3 best and 3 worst players for England against Australia

#1. Freddie Steward

Express 9/10: “England’s shining light at the back. Such a steady hand under the high ball, and confident with ball in hand. Not 21 until next month, looks a hell of a prospect.”

Rugby Pass 8/10: “With Anthony Watson injured, this was another opportunity for Steward to use his time to cement himself into the No.15 and he’s doing just that. A brilliant in and out saw him cross the whitewash after just 7 minutes. Looks to the manor born and one expects – as commentator Nick Mullins pointed out – that this is but the start of a lengthy England career.”

Telegraph 8/10: “Terrific opening try for the Leicester Tigers man. Showed composure under the high ball throughout. Only one error in a terrific game with a stray kick late on. “

WORST PLAYERS:

#3. Manu Tuilagi

Express 6/10: “Wore 14, but was not used a wing, really. Mainly operated in midfield and as a bombing runner, but did not often meet the first man. Dropped a kick off, which will concern Jones.”
