Scotland v Wales - RBS Six NationsNationality: Scottish

Date of Birth: 24 June 1992 (23)

Height: 5ft 11in

Weight: 14st 6lbs

Team: Glasgow Warriors

The Scottish full-back has a rich history playing for his country. He has competed at U17, U18 and U20 level, before being selected in 2012 to play for Scotland seniors.

At 17 Hogg joined the SRU National Academy before transferring over to the Glasgow Warriors as part of the Elite Development Programme. In 2011, at the end of an 18-month programme, Hogg signed his first professional contract with the Warriors.

He earned his first cap in the 2012 RBS 6 Nations Championship against Wales as a replacement for Max Evans on the wing. Two weeks later he made his first start and scored his first Test try against France from full-back. He finished the championship with two more starts at No 15. Unfortunately Scotland lost all of these.

Hogg came into his own during the 2013 Six Nations, scoring two tries and putting in a solid defensive performance. He has been a solid feature in the 2014 and 2015 championships, being part of the starting line-up for all ten games.

Hogg was the youngest tourist on the 2013 Lions tour, entrusted with looking after ‘Bill’, the side’s cuddly lion mascot. Despite playing a number of positions on that tour, he was not capped in a Test. However, the experience training and playing with other international players has been integral to his development.
