TEENAGER Andrew McLean demonstrated that he has taken the step-up from the Premiership with Glasgow Hawks to Super6 with Boroughmuir Bears in his stride, while Euan Cunningham had a good game at the back for Southern Knights, but the full-back jersey once again goes to Dom Coetzer of Watsonians.

Aidan Cross of Southern Knights is on the right wing and Elias Caven off Ayrshire Bulls is on the left wing after helping himself to two more tries to underline his credentials as arguably the best finisher in Super6.

With Adam Scott of Boroughmuir Bears getting the nod at outside-centre ahead of Lewis Berg of Watsonians and Matt Davidson of Heriot’s, it was a tight call between Ryan Southern of Stirling Wolves, Robbie Chalmers of Southern Knights and Andy Stirrat of Ayrshire Bulls for the inside-centre berth, with the former just edging it.

Will Hunt of Ayrshire Bulls provided control and scored a try for Ayrshire Bulls in their win over the Bears so is at stand-off, with lively Murray Scott of Watsonians – scorer of two tries – at scrum-half, edging out Sean Kennedy with the needless yellow-card he picked up counting against him.

Jamie Drummond gets the nod at loose-head with another solid performance in his new position for Ayrshire Bulls, while Dan Gamble edges out Heriot’s team-mate Euan McLaren and Calvin Henderson of the Bulls at tight-head, with Gregor Hiddleston of Stirling Wolves at hooker.

Jamie Campbell of Southern Knights and Hamish Ferguson of Stirling Wolves are the second-rows, while Euan Ferrie – a Glasgow Warriors academy player – stepped up to the plate with a big shift for the Bears which helps compensate for the absence of some senior players in the Bear ranks.

Sam Wallace scored twice and was into everything as Heriot’s pushed Watsonians hard at Myreside on Friday night so is at openside just ahead of the busy and athletic Tim Brown of the Bulls, while Benedict Grant of Stirling Wolves edges out opposite number Rudi Brown for the No 8 jersey.
