LEWIS YOUNG, who got the ball rolling with the opening try for Jed-Forest as they kick-started their season with a high-scoring win in Aberdeen is at full-back, with Liam Brims of Glasgow Hawks pushing him hard for selection. Young is joined in the back-three by Nathan Brown, who marked his first appearance of the season with a brace for Grammar, and Ronan Joy of Glasgow Hawks.

Robbie Kent‘s pace and incisive running were key to several of Accies tries as they put Hawick to the sword at Raeburn Place so he is at outside centre, partnering inside centre Conor Bickerstaff, who was his usual authoritative self both sides of the ball and scored a try for good measure in Marr’s bonus point win at GHA.
Ben Appleson controlled proceedings from stand-off for Accies after a late switch from full-back, and his flawless six from six off the tee edges him ahead of Marr’s Colin Sturgeon at stand-off – with Accies team-mate Ben Afshar at scrum-half.

Loose-head Cole Imrie‘s two tries meant he was selected as Edinburgh Accies’ man-of-the-match, despite the pack being under serious pressure at scrum-time. It was a frustrating afternoon for the Hawick front-row but Matty Carryer showed up well to earn selection once again at hooker, and Paulo Ferreira is at tight-head following his brace for Jed in Aberdeen.
Harry Murray had an outstanding game for Marr at GHA, with the highlight being a moment of absolute magic when he collected a Sturgeon cross-field kick which appeared destined to go to on the full for his team’s third try. He is alongside Jack McLean, who “brings a bit of x-factor to the tight five” for Hawks accruing to TOL reporter Iain Morrison.. That pair edge out Hawick’s Shaun Fairbairn and Musselburgh’s William Fleming, who both dug deep in losing causes, as well as Finlay Simpson of Accies.
In the back-row, Lewis Stewart had a big game at blindside for Glasgow Hawks, Kyle Grieve was outstanding at openside for Jed so sneaks in ahead of Tim Brown of Hawks, and Luke McCutcheon showed up well despite a fairly heavy home defeat for GHA against Marr, which means he makes the team just ahead of Jae Linton of Hawick, Greig Ryan of Aberdeen and two-try Ruari Campbell of Edinburgh Accies.
