The results are in! Yesterday, we asked you to rate the Wallabies side that took to the field in Bledisloe 1, and now we’ve added up the data from all of our responders to bring your our DIY player ratings from the Test.

The short version is that, well, the voters weren’t very happy with the performance of the team as a whole or most of the individuals in it – just three players managed to score higher than a five on average.

David Pocock was the Wallabies’ clear MVP on the night, albeit not against a particularly competitive field. He picked up an average rating of 6.38, while 26 per cent of voters gave him a 7.

Particularly disappointing would have been the form of the Wallabies’ recently re-signed skipper Michael Hooper, and superstar fullback Israel Folau.

Hooper, in his first game after signing a new $6 million contract, copped a rating of 4.74 from the voters.

No doubt Hooper’s average night in comparison with Pocock’s praiseworthy form it’ll lead to more questions being asked over the best positional setup for these two – but in all fairness, it was Hooper’s first game back from injury.

Folau picked up an average rating of 4.11 – by no means the worst in the team (a dubios honour beloning to Tom Robertson), but well below what fans would have hoped to see from the Wallabies’ most potent matchwinner.

Of course, Folau also deserves to be cut a little slack – a hamstring injury in the second half prevented him having any impact on the match thereafter, and has him in doubt for Bledisloe 2 next week.
