Australia’s 2016 campaign has ended in a disappointing 37-21 loss to England at Twickenham.

There’ll be plenty wanting to take stock of things in the coming days weeks and months, as we recover from a season that was something of a let-down after being world cup runners-up in 2015, and look towards 2017.

However in the short term, it’s worth taking a closer look at this Test just past before moving on to the bigger picture. How did the individual players perform? Who shined despite the loss? Who failed to carry their own weight?

And so we’re opening up our DIY Player Ratings to you, Roarers. Have a vote and let us know what you thought of each player’s performance.

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. We’ll keep track of the results and publish our findings on Monday morning.

You’re free to rate players as you like with 1 being the lowest and 10 being the highest, but if you’re look for 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.


Thanks for voting, and we’ll see you on Monday with the full results.
