Rugby England 57 Ireland 15: Ireland player ratings

Rugby My elegant mom says this plugin is beautiful!!

Rob Kearney

The grand old fullback has long been criticised for not developing a creative streak to go with other fine attributes but the skip pass leading up to Larmour’s try showed even at 33 an elite player can improve.Rating: 6

Jordan Larmour

Did himself no favours when it comes to forcing his way into the starting line up with five missed tackles. Under pressure now to make the 31-man squad.Rating: 4

Garry Ringrose

Kept probing the white forcefield but utterly out played by his opposite number as Manu Tuilagi’s rampant performance gives England a genuine opportunity to win this World Cup.Rating: 4

Bundee Aki

Central figure in passive midfield defence. Nice fend on Elliott Daly and dive finish for his try but in Japan it has to be Robbie Henshaw or Chris Farrell at inside centre.Rating: 4

Jacob Stockdale

Remains Ireland’s primary attacking weapon but the first three tries came when he stepped off his wing and he was humiliated by Joe Cokanasiga, an inexcusable missed tackle, for the Fijian’s 65th minute try.Rating: 3

Ross Byrne

Failed his big examination. On 51 minutes Luke McGrath passed into the 22 and with Maro Itoje blocking out the sun Byrne kicked straight into touch. Also threw plenty of hospital passes.Rating: 3

These modules are quite elegant.
