Iconic Scotland captain Stuart Hogg is a three-time British & Irish Lions tourist and back-to-back RBS 6 Nations Player of the Championship (2016 and 2017).
A proud product of Hawick, Hogg signed his first professional deal with Glasgow Warriors in 2011, a club he would go on to make more than 100 appearances for, earning a 2014/15 PRO12 winners’ medal in the process. Hogg’s Scotland debut came off the bench in the 2012 RBS Six Nations in Cardiff, before scoring a try on his first start, against France, two weeks later.
A multitude of praise and honours have followed for a player who has represented Scotland at two Rugby World Cups (2015 and 2019 and won a domestic and European double with Exeter Chiefs, whom he joined from Warriors in 2019.
Scotland’s captain led his side to a first win at Twickenham since 1983, and a first away in France since 1999 during the 2021 Guinness Six Nations.
Perhaps his biggest highlight, however, was a third selection for the British & Irish Lions in 2021, finally earning Test honours having missed out in 2013 and 2017.
With tries against South Africa (2) and Japan in the 2021 Autumn Nations Series, Hogg became Scotland’s all-time leading try scorer with 25, surpassing the great Ian Smith and Tony Stanger (both 24).
