MARKED | How the BBC rated England’s players in 2003 World Cup final

Martin Johnson: Led from the front and a contender for man-of-the-match. Supreme in line-outs. A true presence on the field. 9

Ben Kay: A performance he will want to forget. Knocked on in front of the line and uncharacteristically struggled in the line-out. 5

Richard Hill: Did not enjoy his greatest performance but was there when he was needed. Replaced by Lewis Moody in extra time. 7

Neil Back: High work rate in the loose and caused problems for Australia when it mattered most. Blotted his copy book with some wayward passing. 7

Lawrence Dallaglio: Showed early match nerves, but soon got into his stride. Made the crucial break which resulted in England’s only try. 8
