Ireland 29-16 England: Six Nations player ratings from the Aviva Stadium

Reading now: 735

Hugo Keenan Taken off just before the break for a head injury assessment and sadly missed the second half if not the celebrations. 6 Mack Hansen Well shackled for much of the game but tackle on Watson set up the try for Henshaw that turned the game Ireland’s way. 6 Robbie Henshaw Filled the hole left by the absence of Ringrose and was always a physical threat.

Try brought the house down. 7 Bundee Aki Smart work set up the Henshaw try and gave England’s defence a lot to think about as the game wore on. 7 James Lowe Could not display the kind of opportunist skills that have lit up the tournament but would not have minded one bit. 6 Johnny Sexton If this is a last Six Nations appearance a tournament points record and a grand slam made it a perfect send off. 8 Jamison Gibson-Park Had a quiet game after a fine display at Murrayfield with few chances to test England’s back row but kicked astutely. 6 Andrew Porter Solid in the scrum and worked tirelessly all evening.

Gives Ireland a real hard-as-nails look in the front row. 6 Dan Sheehan His first try after 32 minutes hauled Ireland back into the game.

Always a thorn in England’s side. 8 Tadhg Furlong Not at his best in the set-piece and not quite back to fitness on another physically punishing night. 5 Ryan Baird Not bad for Ireland’s fourth-choice lock.
