You have skipped the navigation, tab for page content rates the performances of all 17 Australian Kangaroos players in the 2017 Anzac Test at GIO Stadium.

1 Darius Boyd

Very good as always and helped set up a second-half try but not his most dominant game. 7

2 Valentine Holmes

Casually racked up 153 metres and continues to look at home in the Test arena. 7

3 Will Chambers

A massive handful with ball in hand and took advantage of scattered Kiwis defence to motor over for a first-half try. 7.5

4 Josh Dugan

A stunning mark for the first try of the game with some potent moments in defence but sadly rubbed out with injury early in the second half. 7.5

5 Blake Ferguson

Continues to find his best footy at the highest level. Scorched away for an intercept try at a crucial point in the first half. 8

6 Johnathan Thurston

Didn't look 100 per cent fit in his first game back from a month out with a calf strain which was an issue in defence but still provided a couple of moments of brilliance to set up two tries. 7.5

7 Cooper Cronk

Brilliant in defence and kicked wonderfully in attack. 8.5

8 Andrew Fifita

A howler of an early knock on and fluffed a late try with the match already in the bag but got through plenty of work incident-free in between. 6.5

9 Cameron Smith

In his 50th Test the skipper put in a typical Cam Smith performance – and yes, that's a very good thing. As always he won't dominate the highlight reels but controlled the pace of the game and was among the best on ground. 9

10 David Klemmer

Plenty of sting in his stints to start and finish the game as his stocks continue to rise. 7.5

11 Boyd Cordner

A constant danger on the left edge and a mountain of work in defence. 7.5

12 Matt Gillett

Best on ground. Stinging early tackles, clean-up tackle and try-saving tackles among a match-high 46 tackles. Does the dirty work and does it well. Threatening with ball in hand to boot. 9.5

13 Trent Merrin

Similar to his recent club form, a muted performance but didn't let anyone down. Seven missed tackles is a worry though. 5.5


14 Michael Morgan

Given a licence to roam in his 33 minutes on field before taking over from Cronk late, combining well with club-mate Thurston. 5.5

15 Jake Trbojevic

Brought plenty of energy off the bench and scored his second Test try in his second Test game. 7

16 Tyson Frizell

The former Wales international is now a walk-up start for the Kangaroos. Ran 104 metres from the bench with an opportunistic though well-deserved try. 7

17 Sam Thaiday

Made his presence felt as soon as he entered the fray with a line break and some quick play-the-balls to cause the Kiwis headaches. 7
