Having had a tournament to remember, including achieving a Grand Slam for the first time since 2003, we take a look back at just how well each member of this championship-winning England squad performed.
Here each player is rated from 1-10.
Joe Marler: 6
His battle for the loosehead prop position with Vunipola will prove fascinating. Two quality players in one position is never a bad thing.
Mako Vunipola: 6
He never really grabbed his chance when given the starting jersey, but still impressed.
Dan Cole: 8
Cole proved this writer wrong. He was fantastic throughout the tournament, he’s back to his best and scored a try to cap off a stellar campaign.
Paul Hill: 5
Hill’s an exciting prospect but never came close to starting over Cole.
Dylan Hartley: 7
Hartley is an excellent leader and proved all his critics wrong. He will find it hard to keep out the challenge of Jamie George for much longer.
Jamie George: 6
He was very positive when given his small chances. England’s most complete hooker.
Luke Cowan-Dickie: 5
He never had chance to shine but did the job when required.
George Kruis: 9
Kruis was the second best player of the tournament. He developed into a world-class line out commander and his work in the loose is second to none.
Maro Itoje: 9
The discovery of the tournament. If he plays like this when he is 21, it is terrifying to imagine what he will become.
Joe Launchbury: 5
Rightly overtaken by Itoje in the pecking order and may find it difficult to earn back his place.
Courtney Lawes: 5
Impressed off the bench against Scotland but was rightly replaced by Itoje.
Chris Robshaw: 8
Robshaw’s tournament is a great tale of redemption. He was fantastic without standing out like a true no. 6 should.
James Haskell: 8.5
This was the best he has ever been for his country. Haskell was monumental in defence and has developed into an important leader in the side.
Jack Clifford: 5.5
Exciting off the bench but it was only ever in a supporting role.
Billy Vunipola: 9
Simply sublime throughout. This writer’s player of the tournament. Can now be considered a world-class number 8.
Danny Care: 7
Care scored a world-class try and should have been given more of a chance. This writer’s preferred choice at 9.
Ben Youngs: 6
Youngs made some stupid decisions and was too slow at the breakdown but showed class for Anthony Watson’s score.
George Ford: 5
Ford made too many errors and does not contribute much to the team. He was carried by Owen Farrell throughout this tournament.
Owen Farrell: 7.5
Simply brilliant. Produced when he was needed and will be the general of an exciting England team for many years to come.
Jonathan Joseph: 6
Showed glimpses of class including a hat-trick against Italy but was not given enough space to show what he is capable of.
Manu Tuilagi: 5
Made just 0ne 15-minute cameo which produced a championship-winning tackle on George North.
Elliott Daly: 5.5
He had no real chance to shine, but had a good defensive display against Ireland.
Jack Nowell: 6.5
Nowell was workmanlike and solid. He was good in defence and compliments Watson’s attacking threat well.
Anthony Watson: 7
Watson’s developing into a world-class finisher. Always dangerous.
Mike Brown: 5.5
Brown did some good work but poor decision-making could have cost England.
