Premiership Dream Team – round six

Aberdeen Grammar, Currie Chieftains and Marr all well represented after picking up wins, while Jed-Forest are unlucky to have only one selection

GRANT MOLLISON scored two of the 15 tries supporters were treated to at Rubislaw on Saturday, and was singled out for praise by GHA head coach Trevor Carmichael, so is named at full-back.

His team-mate Jackson Baillie snatched a hat-trick, and having been a perennial contender for the Dream Team this season is more than deserving of the No 11 jersey. On the opposite wing is Steven Hamilton of Currie Chieftains, edging out two-try Nathan Brown of Aberdeen Grammar.

Grammar duo Murray Mitchell (who also scored a hat-trick) and Tom Aplin (who kicked 17 points) are the centres, with Robbie Yourston unlucky to miss out.

Aaron McColm gets the stand-off slot for his role in Selkirk’s battling defeat at Marr, with Jack Preston of Marr is at scrum-half.

There wasn’t much going for Glasgow Hawks when they lost at home to Currie Chieftains apart from their scrum, which  earns Lyall Archer selection in the Dream Team at loose-head prop, packing down alongside Marr’s Ollie Rossi at hooker and two-try Cairn Ramsay of Currie Chieftains at tight-head.

Ewan Bulger-Hamilton of Marr and Robin Cessford of Aberdeen Grammar populate in the engine-room.

Ben McNeil has put in a series of good performances this season but against Musselburgh he produced his best to date with a display that blended high octane work at the break-down, dogged defence and an ability to move the ball intelligently, so is selected at blindside flanker.

Wallace Nelson put in another all-action performance at open side-flanker for Currie Chieftains, and Luke Hutson saw a lot, had several big carries and scored a try as Musselburgh went down fighting at Riverside Park so is at No 8.
