Sam Malcolm

Malcolm, 25, is back for a fourth season with the club following his return to the Arrows near the end of the 2021 campaign after a short stint with the Kamaishi Seawaves of Japan’s Top Challenge League. The Kiwi first signed with the Arrows in 2019 from New Zealand National Provincial Championship side Manawatu.

The 5’9”, 180lb back has featured in 24 matches (23 starts) for the Arrows between 2019 and 2021, and holds club records in several statistical categories, including points (220), conversions (58), penalty goals (32), goal kicking accuracy (85.7%), and kicking metres (3,239).

Malcolm’s career totals include 664 carry metres on 73 carries, 215 tackles (89.6% completion), 10 dominant tackles, eight tackle breaks, six offloads, three linebreaks, one breakdown steal, and one try. The New Zealander’s impressive performances throughout the club’s inaugural season landed him a spot on the All-MLR 2nd XV in 2019.

The Kiwi also holds the distinction of being the only non-Canadian to captain the Arrows in a MLR match.
