England player ratings for Autumn Internationals: Henry Slade comes of age as young stars deliver

Joe Marler 5/10

Had to be content with a place on the bench behind Ellis Genge before he was ruled out of the Australia match with Covid-19. Held his own off the bench against the Springboks.

Will Stuart 5/10

With a total of just 37 minutes off the bench in the three games he had little time to make an impact but looks to have cemented his place behind Kyle Sinckler.

Alex Dombrandt 6/10

An impressive contribution from the bench in all three games and underscored his potential as powerhouse option at No 8 who is on same attacking page as club-mate Smith 

Alex Mitchell 5/10

A try-scoring cameo from the Northampton scrum-half from the bench against Tonga as Raffi Quirke recovered from a hip injury emphasised England’s new depth at scrum-half.

Charlie Ewels 5/10

A bit-part role from the bench but his physical presence in the final quarter was at the heart of England’s resistance against the Springbok.

Mark Atkinson 5/10

His selection in the squad was an inspiration for late developers but his impact was fleeting, required for just 22 minutes against Tonga before Jones went for six-two split on the bench for the final two matches.

Trevor Davison 5/10

Just nine minutes off the bench against Australia for the Newcastle prop when Genge and Marler were isolating but the 29 year-old relished every minute

Max Malins 7/10

Such a gifted and versatile footballer and stepped up to the mark when Tuilagi went off so early against South Africa, with a wonderful break setting up Steward’s try.

Raffi Quirke 7/10

Has emerged as the top challenger to Ben Youngs. His high-tempo game looks perfectly suited to England’s new style and showed finisher’s instinct with his try against the Springboks.

Joe Marchant 7/10

Brought onto the wing to cope with the aerial onslaught against South Africa but it was his attacking prowess that changed the game, with his break setting up the try for Quirke.

Nic Dolly 6/10

Will have learned more in the final 20 minutes against South Africa than in his previous 22 years. Another exciting front row prospect.
