1. Cian Healy, Ireland
Continuing his rise as the testament to what the modern prop should be, Cian Healy gave another mobile performance against the Azzurri, charging for 30 metres with ball in hand.
The loosehead had to come off after injuring himself in the process of crossing over for a short-range try, but his contributions in the set piece and in the loose were already telling.
2. Dylan Hartley, England
Lions tour member Tom Youngs continues to slip into the England shadows as a triumphant Dylan Hartley impresses more and more under Lancaster's command.
Though there wasn't much to speak of in terms of attacking input, Hartley lost just one line-out throw all day against Wales and contributed an impressive 13 tackles in total.
3. David Wilson, England
Paul James gave the Bath figure some hassle after coming on as a second-half substitute, but David Wilson was largely settled against the Welsh scrum in what was very much a back-and-forth affair.
It was Wilson's initial burst through the middle of the Welsh defence that eventually resulted in Luther Burrell scoring against Wales, the prop carrying for more metres than Wales' Jonathan Davies by the time the last whistle was blown.
4. Courtney Lawes, England
Nominated Man of the Match for his performance against Warren Gatland's men, Courtney Lawes excelled, once again showing that he and Joe Launchbury can be their nation's lock partnership for years to come.
Seventeen metres made with ball in hand, 10 tackles and three takes out the line-out, losing just one jostle, the Saints man got himself about all areas of the pitch, and the London hosts profited as direct result.
5. Joshua Furno, Italy
For the third week in a row, Joshua Furno finds a place in our line-up. The Italian giant filled in as blindside flanker for his side this week, but it just serves as testament to how versatile the towering lock really is.
In an Italian team that was tackle-happy and then some in Dublin, Furno reigned supreme with 24 of his own, missing just two attempts at the Aviva Stadium.
