Sean Maitland; Hugely exposed for the first score, waving frantically for support that didn’t come. Met Kyle Sinckler with a brave smother tackle and superb defensively -7

Darcy Graham; Made a try-saving tackle in the first period. But what a finisher the Hawick boy proved to be as the Scots cut loose. A new star - 8

Nick Grigg; The usual gritty and determined performance from the Warriors centre against the hard-hitting crash ball runners England possessed. Will be sore but happy - 7

Sam Johnson; Nice early run, hugely brave head-on tackle to halt Manu Tuilagi on full throttle. Showed real commitment and was a key man as Scotland fought back - 8

Byron McGuigan; Saw little of the ball, and when he did was usually surrounded by white shirts. Hard shift against the English onslaught, but came good eventually -7

Finn Russell; Battled hard with his team in semi-permanent reverse, and had better days with the boot. But was key in unleashing the Scots backs - 8

Ali Price; Bravely tried to stem the white tide that swamped the Scots early on. Superb chip and chase to set up a score for Bradbury - 7

Allan Dell; His great afternoon against the Welsh must have felt a distant memory at half-time. Stuck with it though faced with a dominating English pack - 6

Stuart McInally; Managed to finally get Scotland on the board after 35 minutes when he charged down Farrell’s kick to run half the pitch to score. The comeback catalyst - 8

Willem Nel; A measure of any player when they can still give their all when so much is going wrong. Solid in the scrum in extreme circumstances - 6

Ben Toolis; The Edinburgh giant showed up well in every department against two English powerhouses in Kruis and Launchbury. Met fire with fire throughout - 7

Grant Gilchrist; Easily one of Scotland most consistent players during the duration of this Championship, more than matched his opposite numbers - 7

Sam Skinner; You got the feeling that even when the odds were against the Scots he was thriving in this environment. Never shirked a tackle - 7

Hamish Watson; Yet again, showed his illusiveness with the ball in hand, bouncing off opponents and setting England backwards constantly. One of our top performers - 8

Magnus Bradbury; Showed some superb reading of the game and natural ability in chasing up Price’s chip and take to get Scotland right back in the contest -7


Fraser Brown; One of a quintet who appeared after 56 minutes

Gordon Reid; appeared after 45 minutes

Simon Berghan; introduced for Nel after an hour

Jonny Gray; appeared after 56 minutes

Josh Strauss; another who came on after 56 minutes

Greig Laidlaw; replaced Price after 56 minutes

Adam Hastings; called from the bench for Maitland late

Chris Harris; One of a quintet who appeared after 56 minutes

Elliot Daly; The Lions star produced one piece of handling magic - a back of the hand pass to Jack Nowell - as England turned on the exhibition stuff -7

Jack Nowell; Marvellous run and angle to motor in for the first English try after just 67 seconds. Immense enthusiasm and workrate even when chasing the game -7

Henry Slade; Ran a great line to set up his Exeter Chiefs team-mate Nowell for the opening score. Then set up May for try No.4 with a great slight of hand - 8

Manu Tuilagi; Took a wee bit to find his feet - particularly after Sam Johnson’s crash tackle in the opening minutes. Always a danger with his forceful runs - 7

Jonny May; Like all good wingers, his support running was exemplary throughout and profited from being one the shoulder of Henry Slade in the first-half - 7

Owen Farrell; With that early try on the board Farrell needed no second opportunity or thought to press home the advantage. Looked bewildered by Scots fightback -7

Ben Youngs; Became England’s most capped scrum-half on the day - his 85th appearance - and but for a knock-on would have had a try to celebrate - 7

Ben Moon; Sang the National Anthem with great gusto, then got a Ben Toolis in the ribs and his day was done after four minutes - 2

Jamie George; Was having a field day and all dominant at the set play while England were on top. Once the comeback began, Jamie was posted AWOL - 7

Kyle Sinckler; Rampaging run from the England tighthead was the foundation for Launchbury’s try. Not as easy to wind up yesterday and was all the better for it -7

Joe Launchbury; Almost like a breakaway forward in his support play which earned him a score during that mental opening quarter. Tireless worker in all areas - 8

George Kruis; Two great hits on Finn Russell meant the Scots just couldn’t get a toe-hold in this one. Superb first-up tackler through this campaign for England - 8

Mark Wilson; Like all good flankers the Newcastle Falcons man was quick to the breakdown and tackle but met his match against the Scots backrow -7

Tom Curry; Has to be one of England’s players of the tournament and made his mark within first ten minutes of this tie with a pushover try - 7

Billy Vunipola; His take on a short throw to the line-out - straight off the training ground - set up the English for their second try - 7


Luke Cowan-Dickie; 74th minute sub for George

Ellis Genge; On from just the fourth minutes after Ben Moon was crocked -6

Dan Cole; Stepped in after 50 minutes for Sinckler

Brad Shields; sub for Wilson on the hour mark

Nathan Hughes; Given last six minutes to influence the outcome

Ben Spencer; replaced the fatigued Youngs

George Ford ; swapped for skipper Farrell with ten left

Ben Te’o; last ditch sub for Tuilagi
