Sportsmail‘S ADAM HATHAWAY ranked players from both teams in Brisbane.

England ended a four-game unbeaten streak with a 25-17 win over Australia in Brisbane.

England

Freddie Steward 8

Played just like 21 and experienced players, smart in the air, strong in attack and kicked well.

Jack Novell 8

Engaged off his wing and brought more energy to the England attack. Good under high content.

Guy Porter 6

There is no replacement for Manu Tui yet but there are shades of big man in his carrying.

Owen Farrell 9

There was a bit in his teeth and Kerevi showed off a strip and kicked 20 points.

Former England captain Owen Farrell gritted his teeth and scored 20 points.

Tommy Freeman 5

He’s not as involved as he should be but should get another chance in Sydney next week.

Marcus Smith 6

Received a yellow card after 52 minutes but fell victim to the most insane law in the game. Settling at this level.

Jack Van Portvilliet 7

Very encouraging from the 21-year-old, who was the first start but sharp for England.

Alice Ganz 8

Won the battle against Tupau on points and prime for a knockout round in Sydney.

Prop Ellis Genz was an impressive presence for England before being pulled out after the break

Jamie George 7

Hard to carry in line, well groomed and busy around the park. A heartbeat.

Will Stuart 6

Up and down the scrum but fought and seems to have survived at this level.

Maro Itoje 7

Much like the Itoze you know with his energy before head knocking in the first half.

Johnny Hill 7

This week the wind-up was kept to a minimum and the ball was more effective on the hands and set-pieces.

Courtney Lodge (Captain)

A total of 100 international games and it looks like he could play another 100. Excellent as all park and leader.

This was Courtney Loss's 100th international game and it looks like he could play another 100

Sam Underhill8

Came back after losing the first Test and won the breakdown battle with Hooper before being replaced after the game.

Billy Wunipola 9

Just like the Big Billy we know and one of his best games for England as he moved on. He is back.

Replacement: L. Cowan-Dickey (for George 55) 6, m. Unipola (for Genz 55) 6, j. Hayes (for Stuart 60) 6, o. Chesam (for Etoje 40), l. Ludlam (for underhill 58)) 6, w. Joseph (for Porter 78) 5, d. Care (for Van Portville 63) 6, h. Arundel (for Freeman 70) 5

Australia

Jordan Petia 4

There is no chance to shine in the game before he gets injured after four minutes.

Tom Wright 6

One of the changes Valbeys implemented, but a break showed his class when he backed off the defense.

Hunter Paisami6

Implemented another change for Australians but made some decent dents.

Samu Kerevi 6

Big game last week and some glimpses of strength here as well as trying to walk.

Marika Koroibete 5

He had come down from his wings to make more than one threat but this time he was knocked out by the England defense.

Noah Lolesio 6

Last week’s game saw a late change and shine, and he did the same by kicking here.

Nic White 6

The former Exeter scram-half was busy enough and a brilliant kick shook England.

Angus Bell 5

Will Stuart got a six in the first half but not much around the park. Calm down.

David Poreki 6

Solid enough with the second test and basics for the former Irish man from London.

Tanila Tupau 4

The war of words with Alice Ganges was lost and the important battle on the pitch was lost.

Taniela Tupou lost the battle of words with Ellis Genge and also lost the battle on the pitch

Matt Philip 5

Good in the queue but against England’s pack which was on the highest of the night.

Cadern Neville 5

His second Test was nothing like another volleyball and last weekend’s impact.

Rob Liota 5

Second rate compared to Courtney Lodge and not at the same level as last week in Perth.

Michael Hooper (Capt.) 6

Sam found his match in Underhill and his usual excellent breakdown didn’t work out.

Rob Valetini 5

Not going too far from No.8 and the second one to fall behind as England put pressure early.

Replacement: F. Fainga’a (for Poreki 55) 5, S. Sio (for Bell 51-52) 3, J. Slipper (for Tupou 52) 4, N. Frost (for Neville 57) 4, P. Samu ( For Liota 67) 5, j. Gordon (for White 68) 5, j. O’Connor (for Perez 41) 5, I. Perez (for Petia 4) 3
