4 – Maro Itoje (England): Terrific defensively catching Ireland behind the gainline and one-man protective ruck blanket for England.
5 – Paul Willemse (France): Massive, brute power for his peel off try in the 30th minute.

6 – Ross Moriarty (Wales): Good source of line-out possession on his return to the side. Carried hard and relished the brutal physical nature of the contest. One of Wales’ better players and shifted to No 8.
7 – Sam Underhill (England): A thorn in Ireland’s side leading the swarming defence which knocked the visitors for six with 21 tackles. Such an exocet when he lines an opponent up.
Sam Underhill is built for confrontation. Everything about dude looks like violence!— Allan Gamba (@AllanG11) February 23, 2020
8 – Gregory Alldritt (France): The young Frenchman has made the kind of sudden impact on the Test scene that Faletau did back in the day. His carrying has been of a class. Monster.
