Wallabies DIY player ratings vs England, Game 3

Another year, another series loss to England, the old enemy too strong for the Wallabies at the SCG with a 21-17 win to claim the inaugural Ella-Mobbs Cup.

An early lead sparked hopes of an against-the-odds triumph, but the undermanned Wallabies couldn’t contain the Poms for long, and while the match was alive until the final whistle, the home side seldom looked like winners.

With the series done and dusted, there’s only one thing left to do: rank each Wallaby’s performance at the SCG from 1 to 10.

You don’t have to rate every player – if you didn’t catch enough of someone’s performance or don’t think they were on the field long enough for you to make a judgment, just leave them blank and it won’t affect their score.

If you need a rough guide as to what each score means, here’s what we go off.

1. Had he not played, the team would have been better off. Negatively affected the performance of the side. May God John Eales have mercy on his soul.
2. Anonymous. Was he even there?
3. Did some things that you expect a player to be able to do, but did a whole bunch of other things that sucked.
4. Was passable in patches, but not up to standard in a match of such importance.
5. Performed his role without anything really noticeable happening.
6. Good.
7. Pretty good, actually.
8. Very good.
9. Excellent.
10. Extraordinary. Calling them man of the match would be an insult.

Did Suliasi Vunivalu dazzle you in his *checks notes* three and a half minutes of game time on debut? Will Michael Hooper divide opinion as much in the rankings as he does in our comments? And will Taniela Tupou’s mistakes impact his score after another typically industrious evening?

If you’re ready to get ranking, just head to the form below and make your choices!
