It wasn’t easy, but the Wallabies have secured a fifth win in a row for the first time since the 2015 World Cup with a 32-23 triumph over Japan in Oita.
Who shone against the Brave Blossoms, and who faces a nervous wait as the tour heads to the UK? It’s time for you to make the calls.
Here’s how it works: you rate the Wallabies team from one to ten in the form below. You don’t have to give every player a score – if you didn’t catch enough of someone’s performance or don’t think they were on the field long enough for you to make a judgment, just leave them blank and it won’t affect their score. For instance, if you feel Reece Hodge’s 12 minutes before injury weren’t sufficient to give him a fair rating, you are free to do so.
If you need a rough guide as to what each score means:
1. Had he not played, the team would have been better off. Negatively affected the performance of the side. May
GodJohn Eales 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 match of such importance.
5. Performed his role without anything really noticeable happening.
7. Pretty good, actually.
8. Very good.
10. Extraordinary. Calling them man of the match would be an insult.
Was Connal McInerney’s game-sealing try enough for a high score on debut? Does Quade Cooper get marked down for ‘that’ intercept try? Did anyone deserve a perfect 10 in what Dave Rennie called a “rusty, frustrating” game?
