Six Nations report card: How every Scotland player rated

As the dust from that extraordinary draw at Twickenham begins to settle, Duncan Smith assesses the performances of Gregor Townsend's squad in a campaign of highs and lows.

Scotland players celebrate after scoring a try against England at Twickenham

A total of 37 players featured for Scotland, with each one given a mark out of ten.

Tournament ended prematurely in week two. Had scored a fingertip try in the opener against Italy. Unsurprisingly his world-class attacking threat was missed in the remainder of the competition

Reached 50 caps but couldnt add to his 19 tries. Injury ruled him out of Calcutta Cup clash, which saw Darcy Graham stake a big World Cup claim with his two tries.
Employed on the wing against Italy and became first Scot to score a Six Nations hat-trick. Hoggs injury gave him a chance at 15 but injury against Wales ended his tournament.
Partly at fault for Ireland's opening try. Injury while playing for Saracens saw him miss the Wales game before he stepped in impressively at full-back in the Calcutta Cup epic
Came off the bench against Wales and started at Twickenham. Versatile wing/back-row is a player Gregor Townsend clearly likes and has became a valuable option.
Fairytale stuff for the 21-year-old, who scored try against Wales on his first start and home debut then grabbed two at Twickenham. Could he be our answer to Shane Williams?
Struggling to rediscover his stellar form of the past couple of seasons, the hero of the 2018 Calcutta Cup win had his tournament ended by a knee injury against Ireland
Excellent debut against Italy, very good against Ireland, dipped in Paris and left out of Wales game. Brought back in for Calcutta Cup and scored what will go down as one of the most famous tries in Scotlands history
Replaced Finn Russell against France and started at centre against Wales. Always gives great effort and attacks with intelligence but prone to defensive lapses. Dropped for Calcutta Cup
Didnt have the best game in Paris, but this ferocious competitor is a player players love and Townsend kept faith in him for the last two games, in which he played very well
Newcastle centre has floated around the squad since his debut in November 2017 but is another Townsend clearly rates. Made two bench cameos on the opening / closing weekends
Star of the show. One of the greatest ever performances by a Scot at Twickenham. Badly missed in France but move to Paris has made for a more mature and consistent playmaker. Magnificent.
Started as skipper, then dropped to the bench after France loss. Remains a key member of the squad ahead of the World Cup but may no longer be seen as first-choice scrum-half
Often seen as Laidlaw's heir who can deliver the high-tempo game Townsend wants. Hasnt always nailed his case, but finished strongly as starting No9 and was excellent at Twickenham
Valuable learning experience in his first Six Nations for this exciting young talent. Made good contributions and seems to have put his winter dip in club form behind him
Calf injury in Italy game was a big blow to the Scottish setpiece but thankfully the tighthead titan was back to bring his stabilising influence at scrum time in the last two games
Continued the form which has seen him rated as one of the best hookers in world rugby. Stunning try got Scotland on the board at Twickenham and provided foothold for incredible comeback
Got better as the tournament progressed and became one of the key tackle makers among the Scottish pack.
Leicester hooker made a cameo off the bench in the last 20 minutes against Italy for his debut.
Bench appearances against Italy and Ireland. Glasgow prop will now look to push his international career on with a move to Edinburgh next season.
Featured in every game either starting as a sub. Doesnt bring what WP Nel does at tighthead, but few do. Solid showing
Returned from injury for the Ireland game to provide quality hooker back-up to McInally.
Made his debut off the bench against Ireland.
Eighth cap off the bench at Stade de France.
Just the one appearance off the bench in Paris as he continues comeback from injury.
Off the bench at Twickenham.
Continued fine Edinburgh form to re-emerge as a Scotland regular.
Excellent showing against England might mean the Edinburgh engine room is difficult to dislodge.
Featured once off the bench against Ireland.
Tournament ended by knee ligament injury in the loss to Ireland.
Not at his best after shoulder problems
Continued his fine form this season with four big shifts before missing the England game with head and neck injuries.
Scotland fans are likely to see a lot more of Skinner this year. He is being viewed increasingly as a blindside option by Townsend and brings size and physicality
Finally confirmed as a Scotland player after making his debut off the bench against Italy then a spicy cameo in France.
A real renaissance for the Sale No 8 who seemed to have drifted out of the picture. Some big carrying shifts throughout.
Returned from injury in Paris, improved against Wales and was superb at Twickenham, scoring a brilliant try.
The openside was a big loss with an eve-of-tournament broken hand. Made a stunning return off the bench against Wales and some fine contributions at Twickenham.
