ROBERT KEARNEY: Outnumbered for Gray's try. Exploded into the game with broken field running .
TOMMY BOWE: A split-second away from his sixth try in four matches. Peripheral.
KEITH EARLS: Looking more secure with every outing at thirteen. Sparkling acceleration.
GORDON D'ARCY: Not at his best. McFadden must be closing in.
ANDREW TRIMBLE: Nice footwork for his try. Keen to make an impact.
JONATHAN SEXTON: Struck for six out of seven. A defensive rock.
EOIN REDDAN: Sniped well, not just for the try. Inaccurate box kicking.
CIAN HEALY: All-round world-class loose-head. Tackled, carried, hit rucks and dismantled the Scottish scrum.
RORY BEST: Commendable captaincy to go for the lineout that led to his try. Two missed throws.
MIKE ROSS: Forced Jacobsen to concede ground at the scrum. Solid.
DONNCHA O'CALLAGHAN: Worked hard. Caught out by Blair on his inside shoulder.
DONNACHA RYAN: An old hand leading the lineout, stealing two. Drove powerfully and athletically.
STEPHEN FERRIS: Incredible. Almost every tackle was comprehensive, effective and made on the front-foot.
PETER O'MAHONY: Nice work for Best's try. One superb tackle on Denton. Grew into it. Great poach on Cusiter.
JAMIE HEASLIP: The work ethic was there. The big plays were not.
