Player of the round: Kurtley Beale. The Rebels look so much better with Danny Cipriani gone and Beale taking over as playmaker. An excellent performance and now the hot favourite to be the Wallabies No 10.

Try of the round: Cooper Vuna. A great veering run and pass by Beale put the Rebels winger away.
