Currie named as URC breakout star

Edinburgh utility back Matt Currie has been named as one of the URC breakout stars of the season.

The 23-year-old started in all 16 games he played for Sean Everitt's side.

With 119 tackles and an 85% success rate, Currie established himself as a dependable defensive asset.

Currie also showed his attacking ability by making 101 carries for 394 metres despite Edinburgh's practical approach. Everitt's men scored 47 tries, ranking them 12th of the 18 teams.

Uncapped Currie is set for a Scotland debut this season having been named in the squad for the tour of the Americas.
