Wing: Julian Savea, New Zealand
It looked as though Ireland could be the side to finally silence Julian Savea, but the All Blacks' most promising youngster smashed those hopes apart, barreling through to score his team's first try in the 25th minute.
From there, it was only upwards for Savea, and when the ball did make its way out as far as him, he tended to make great use, carrying for 71 metres in total.
Inside Centre: Wesley Fofana, France
Beating an impressive five defenders and carrying for more than 50 metres, Wesley Fofana stood as one of France's brighter lights in their dim defeat at the hands of South Africa.
In a match where Les Bleus were at times struggling to think their way around the opposition, the Clermont Auvergne attacker was a constant source of innovation and strived to bring his teammates along for the ride.
Outside Centre: Ben Smith, New Zealand
Ben Smith showed this weekend just how well he is settling into the role of outside centre in the absence of namesake Conrad Smith, outclassing Brian O'Driscoll, albeit only for a short period before the Irish stalwart was substituted with injury.
Although it almost certainly helped that O'Driscoll was no longer the man up against him, Smith was one of those who thrived at the Aviva, averaging almost 10 metres per carry as he battered his way to more than 100 metres run with ball in hand.
Wing: Chris Feauai-Sautia, Australia
There wasn't a thriving sample of expert wing performances this weekend, but Chris Feauai-Sautia managed to shine alongside teammate Israel Folau, grabbing one of the Wallabies' two tries at Murrayfield.
Tommy Seymour had a tough time up against the 20-year-old, who punished his Scottish marker with the slightest sign of a turnover on several occasions.
Full-Back: Rob Kearney, Ireland
Special mention goes to Israel Folau, who had an almost flawless display at the back against Scotland but is only just beaten due to the difficulty of opposition that his Irish counterpart was up against.
Kearney did something that not many fullbacks have done this year in outshining Israel Dagg, running for a monstrous 114 metres and finishing off Ireland's third try.
A pest for the All Blacks defence to contend with all game, the Leinster star also put his spin on the kicking game, posing his customarily massive aerial presence.
