The Hawick man has been in electric form in the opening rounds, scoring five tries in three games.
After grabbing an impressive brace against Dragons RFC in Round 1, the winger went one better against Vodacom Bulls, notching up a scintillating hat-trick as Edinburgh came close to securing a famous win in Pretoria.
A showstopper with a unique ability for squeezing through the narrowest of gaps, Graham couldn’t have asked for a better start to the 22/23 campaign.
Chosen charity: Scottish Ambulance Service (Hawick)
After an impressive summer tour to Argentina, Pierre Schoeman has returned to the capital in fine form, picking up where he left off in 21/22.
Schoeman was a carrying machine against his former side Vodacom Bulls in Pretoria, before the loosehead prop grabbed his first try of the season against DHL Stormers last weekend.
Schoeman continues to excel up front and alongside WP Nel and Stuart McInally, the trio form a powerful front-row package.
Chosen charity: My Name’5 Doddie Foundation
Bennett has started the 22/23 campaign in fine form and capped off a swashbuckling performance against Bulls in Round 2 by being named Vodacom Player of the Match.
The centre provided a flurry of assists in a confident performance in the capital midfield while Bennett took on kicking responsibilities in the absence of Kinghorn and Boffelli.
A real leader in the Edinburgh backline, Bennett’s importance in both attack and defence cannot be underestimated.
Chosen charity: Hearts and Balls
The full-back has started every game so far in 22/23 and has looked assured as ever under the high ball.
A ‘bomb diffuser’ with no fear in contact, Immelman is a reliable playmaker in the No. 15 jersey whose kicking ability adds another facet to the Edinburgh attack.
Immelman has worked well with Darcy Graham and Damien Hoyland in a back-three group that bring a hard-working flair to the backline.
Chosen charity: Social Bite
