HERE is The Offside Line’s BT Premiership team-of-the-season, based on the number of times players were selected in our regular team-of-the-week feature. 

When a player has been selected in team-of-the-week in a number of different positions, he is put forward in the position he played most. This team is selected from the regular league season (play-offs not included).

Several positions were dead-heats, and in those instances we have left  it to the readers to decide amongst themselves which individual should get the nod!


 15. Fraser Thomson (Melrose) – 7 teams-of-the-week


14.  Ben Robbins (Currie Chieftains) – 4 teams-of-the-week (including twice at full-back)

13.  Rory Hutton (Watsonians) – 5 teams-of-the-week (including two at stand-off)

12. Craig Jackson (Melrose) / Robbie Nelson (Currie Chieftains) – 6 teams-of-the-week
