Louis Rees-Zammit handed brutal 5/10 by Mike Brown despite try-scoring Lions debut

5. Maro Itoje

  • Highest mark: Itoje bullied the Sigma Lions on their own ball, and made himself a nuisance at the lineout. (Off The Ball – 8/10)
  • Lowest mark: As always was in the thick of the action and one of the Lions’ best carriers (Sky Sports – 7/10)

6. Courtney Lawes

  • Highest mark: Brilliant game. Continue that form he could be pushing to replace the injured Alun Wyn Jones at lock. (Mail Online – 8/10)
  • Lowest mark: As always was in the thick of the action and one of the Lions’ best carriers. (Sky Sports – 7/10)

7. Hamish Watson

  • Highest mark: A warrior who started as if he planned to take on the Sigma Lions on his own. Punishing carries, big tackles, a try — all in the first 10 minutes. (Wales Online – 9/10)
  • Lowest mark: He is doing what made him Six Nations player of the tournament. (Mail Online – 8/10)

8. Taulupe Faletau

  • Highest mark: His 25 metres carried was more than any other forward and 12 tackles was only bettered by Watson. (Sky Sports – 8/10)
  • Lowest mark: Faletau was somewhat hidden in the first match of the tour in South Africa. (Off The Ball – 6/10)
