The Lions second row had an average game for the home side. He made 18m from his 9 runs and was extremely disruptive of the Welsh maul. He made 7 tackles which is less than usual so he will look to improve upon that against Scotland in 2 weeks.
A good performance from the former England captain. He carried more often than usual, making 22m from 13 carries as he deputised at 8 for Sam Simmonds. He made a massive 16 tackles to help his side to the victory.
Very quiet afternoon for the loosehead. Consistently solid at scrum time but was unable to make a positive impression on the game. Worked hard in defence.
Accurate at the lineout, consistently hitting his target. He failed to make an impression with ball in hand but got through an impressive amount of work at the breakdown.
Solid at scrum time. Never really got a chance to offer anything in attack and was guilty of a couple of missed tackled around the park.
Very quiet afternoon from the second row. He was unable to make any impression with ball in hand but provided a great option at the lineout.
One of the better performers in the Welsh pack today. Consistently got up well to win the ball at the lineout but failed to get over the gainline when carrying. Solid defensively.
The standout performer in the Welsh front 8. Got through a huge amount of behind the scenes work at the breakdown. He also showed flashes of attacking brilliance, carrying 16 times for a total of 56 metres.
Much quieter performance from the flanker this weekend compared to his brilliant showing against Scotland. Failed to get over the gainline but stood up to the test defensively, making 19 tackles and missing none.
An integral part of a solid Welsh back row. He was dogged in defence, making 16 tackles and missing none. He also secured a vital turnover but only managed to gain 18 metres with ball in hand.
Marshalled his backline well but was unable to launch any really dangerous attacks due to the huge number of handling errors throughout the team. His box kicks were consistently over hit, handing cheap possession to the England back three time and time again.
A nervy performance from the outhalf. Didn’t look confident at any stage with ball in hand and went missing in defence at times. It looks like Eddie Jones may have got to him after all.
Evans had some nice attacking runs but made just four tackles out of a possible 7, a quiet day at the office.
12. Hadleigh Parkes - 6/10
Parkes had a solid game acting as a distributor and he totalled 16 passes. Parkes beat a total of 6 defenders today but failed to make a huge amount of yardage.
13. Scott Williams - 5/10
Williams will be kicking himself when he watches the replay of today’s game. He butchered Wales’s most promising opportunity to score a try.
14. Josh Adams - 5/10
Adams failed to make a huge impact on the game and despite making one clean break he lacked the attacking flair needed to topple a quality England side.
15. Gareth Anscombe - 7/10
A lot was asked of Anscombe today and although he gave a solid performance with a total of 107 meters made from a whopping 18 runs.
