Graham Appo (born 11 July 1974) is an Australian former rugby league footballer of Papua New Guinean descent of the 1990s and 2000s. He played all throughout the back-line during his long career and was also a talented goal-kicker. Appo started playing first grade club football in the New South Wales Rugby League premiership for the Canberra Raiders in 1994, winning the club's rookie of the year award. Early in the 1998 season he joined the Adelaide Rams for their final season in the NRL, setting club records for most tries in a match (3), most tries in a season (12), most goals in a match (8), most points in a match (24) and most points for a season (116). He then moved to the Sydney City Roosters and later the North Queensland Cowboys for a season each.
Appo embarked on a Super League career after the 2000 NRL season. In England he played for the Huddersfield Giants and Warrington Wolves. Appo's best year came in 2003 when, covering at stand-off for the injured Lee Briers, he scored 23 tries for Warrington, in one game scoring a total of 34 points which was the second highest individual points haul for a player in Super League at the time. He was later named in that year's Super League Dream Team.
