On Saturday night the Wallabies went up against the All Blacks for the first time since the two nations met in the final match of the Rugby World Cup in 2015.

The Wallabies came off second best then, and it was the same result again last night – with an even more emphatic scoreline of 42-8.

That makes for four straight defeats this year on home soil for the Wallabies, after going 0-3 in the Test series against England earlier in 2016.

Simply put, things aren’t exactly going great for rugby in Australia at the moment. And that’s being nice about it.

It’s time for a cold hard dose of reality – Roarers, we want you to rate the performances of the Wallabies players, and no, we don’t expect you to be kind!

If you’ve not done our DIY player ratings before, it’s a simple enough process. Hit up the form below and rate each player from 1 to 10 based on their performance last night. We’ll keep track of the results and publish our findings tomorrow morning.

You’re free to rate players as you like with 1 being the lowest and 10 being the highest, but if you’re after a bit more detail than that, we leave you in the capable hands of The Roar’s editor Patrick Effeney who put this guide together last year.

1. Had he not played, the team would have been better off. Negatively affected the performance of the side. May God have mercy on his soul.
2. Anonymous. Was he even there?
3. Did some things that you expect a player to be able to do, but did a whole bunch of other things that sucked.
4. Was passable in patches, but not up to standard in a squad of such depth.
5. Performed his role without anything really noticeable happening.
6. Good
7. Pretty good, actually
8. Very good
9. Excellent
10. Might as well have been John Eales
