Darcy Graham was at his fleet-footed best as his two tries helped Edinburgh level things in this season’s 1872 Cup stakes as they beat Glasgow Warriors 29-19 at BT Murrayfield.
In a game that was littered with Scotland internationals, it was the prodigal wing who shone in front of a record crowd for the fixture in the Scottish capital.
He opened the scoring with 17 minutes on the clock after grasping a sublime Bill Mata offload before dummying his way to the line to put the finishing touches to one of the standout scores of the Guinness PRO14 season so far.
Huw Jones responded in kind for the Warriors as he darted through for a try that levelled things.
Scotland second row Scott Cummings powered over to put Glasgow back in front in a game that swung one way then the other.
Scrum-halves Henry Pyrgos and George Horne then traded scores before Graham turned on the afterburners to seal victory.
After they had taken the initiative with a penalty try, the 22-year-old, who scored twice in Scotland’s historic 38-38 draw with England to close out this year’s Guinness Six Nations, sped the length of the field after being put away by Mark Bennett to demonstrate his importance to club and country.
Gregor Townsend will no doubt have been left purring as he lines the youngster up for what could well be a coming-of-age Championship in February.
