Sean Maitland Reassuring presence at the back showed a couple of excellent flashes in attack. 7 out of 10   

Darcy Graham Picked up his ninth try in 18 games and kept looking for action although game didn’t always come his way. 7 

Huw Jones Cut Italy wide open almost every time he got his hands on the ball but not tested in defence. 8

Sam Johnson Ran hard, solid in defence and a try top it off. 7 

Duhan van der Merwe Took advantage of the space he was given with two tries and 220 metres made with ball in hand. 8

Stuart Hogg Several classy touches, looked comfortable slotting into the playmaker role, and six conversions is the most by a Scottish player in a single Six Nations match. 7 

Scott Steele Stuck to his guns in his first start but jury is out on consistency of his service. 7

Rory Sutherland Replaced early in second half and wrapped in cotton wool ahead of France next week. 7 

Dave Cherry Celebrated his first Test start in style with two tries, and his line-out throwing was spot-on. 8 

Zander Fagerson Good to have him back, showed up well in both tight and the loose. 7 

Sam Skinner A towering performance on his return to the team. 8 

Grant Gilchrist Has slipped down pecking order recently but never provides less than 100 percent. 7 

Jamie Ritchie Lots of nice link work and the breakdown was a lot better this week. 8 

Hamish Watson A huge, man-of-the-match performance with 21 carries and 120 metres made 9

Matt Fagerson Gave away a penalty early on but generally effective both sides of the ball. 7 

Best of the rest   

Alex Craig Debutant off the bench worked hard to grasp the opportunity. 7   

Ali Price Stated his case for a recall to starting XV with impressive final 25 minutes. 7
