Rugby World Cup warm-up: How England’s players rated against Wales

England ground out a fine 33-19 win over Wales at Twickenham on Sunday. Here’s a look at how England’s stars rated as the World Cup approaches…

15 Elliot Daly: Didn’t have his best afternoon but kicked a clever late drop goal. 6/10.

14 Joe Cokanasiga: His usual powerful self, caused plenty of problems out wide and scored a first-half try. 8/10.

13 Jonathan Joseph: Made a blistering start to the match and proved to be a threat throughout. 7/10.

12 Piers Francis: A broadly quiet afternoon but stood up well in defence and did little wrong with the ball. 7/10

11 Anthony Watson: May well have played his way into selection for the World Cup on that back of this performance. A strong all-round performance. 8/10.
