Made a nice break down the left wing in the first half but failed to convert. Work rate in his 54 minute stint was good.

13. Manu Tuilagi - 9

Great to see Tuilagi back to his best, took his 2 tries well and going forward showing great power. Some great running lines too.

14. Anthony Watson - 7

A couple dropped balls but made a superb break deep from inside his own half into the Tongan 22. Did look dangerous when on the ball.


15. Elliot Daly - 6

Assured performance from the back, denied a certain try due to a sloppy hands from Slade.
