Scot­land’s Hogg named player of Six Na­tions cham­pi­onship

New Straits Times - - Sport -

LON­DON: Scot­land full-back Stu­art Hogg was named Six Na­tions player of the cham­pi­onship on Thurs­day for the sec­ond year in a row.

The 24-year-old scored three tries, in­clud­ing a dou­ble dur­ing the open­ing week­end vic­tory against Ire­land.

He con­tin­ued to be his team’s main at­tack­ing threat through­out the tour­na­ment, play­ing a key role as the Scots went on to se­cure wins over Wales and Italy.

Hogg se­cured 24 per cent of the public vote with Ire­land back­row for­ward CJ Stander in sec­ond place.

“To re­ceive this award again is an ab­so­lute honour, par­tic­u­larly when you take other play­ers on the short­list into ac­count,” Hogg said.
