The Wallabies had one of their most famous wins against England overcoming significant challenges to take a 1-0 lead in the best of three series. Here is how the players performed in Perth according to your votes in our DIY player ratings poll.

With Quade Cooper a very late withdrawal after suffering an injury in the pre-game warm up, Noah Lolesio came in to fill the void as his replacement.

It can’t be easy being a replacement at the best of times but particularly when you find out so close to game time that you will be putting on the boots in such a key position as fly-half.

Lolesio performed his job and went above and beyond expectations. His performance scored him an average rating of 7.49.

Just as impressive were the two debutants in Dave Porecki and Caderyn Neville who both averaged above a 7 rating according to your votes.

The official man of the match on the night went to Samu Kerevi but our poll shows it must have been a tough decision with so many performing strongly.

Marika Koroibete had the highest average and the highest most common rating of 9 with 34% of responders rating him as almost perfect.

Andrew Kellaway (7.74) also polled well and the captain Michael Hooper (7.27) was solid once again.


It was the kind of night where all the Wallabies had to step up and be counted with a red card testing their depth.

It was a great character test and the Wallabies passed it with flying colours. One down, two to go.
