Scotland’s Darcy Graham has become Cheslin Kolbe 2.0 this season
Sometimes, a player that represents a team that aren’t that dominant means that do not get the credit they deserve, and that is especially true for wingers. Edinburgh’s Darcy Graham is one of those players.
The Scotland winger is topping basically every stat that a winger would want to top this season in the United Rugby Championship. He is top of the try-scoring charts with six, he is top for running metres with 392m, he is top for line-breaks with seven and he is top for tackle-breaks with 21.
After the opening four @URCOfficial rounds, Darcy Graham is:
Top try-scorer with six.
Top for running metres with 392m.
Top for line-breaks with seven.
Top for tackle-breaks with 21.

Standing at 1.77m, Graham is in the bracket of small wingers on the Test stage, alongside the likes of South Africa’s Cheslin Kolbe and Kurt-Lee Arendse and France’s Gabin Villiere. He probably packs a bit more power in contact than those three as well.
The Scot has exhibited some world class finishing so far this season, despite Edinburgh sitting in the bottom half of the URC table. His finish against the Lions last Friday at the DAM Health Stadium was an example of what a finisher he is, and the form he is in at the moment.
Take a look:
The tries keep on coming for Darcy Graham! 🙌
