Rugby World Cup 2019: Stuart Hogg (Scotland)

  • 05/04/2019

Born: June 24, 1992 in Melrose, Scotland

Position: Fullback

Club: Exeter Chiefs 

Height: 1.80m

Weight: 93kgs

Caps:  69

The British and Irish Lions fullback has been one of Scotland's best over the years, winning back-to-back Six Nations player of the season awards in 2017/18. 

An elusive runner with ball in hand, Stuart Hogg come agonisingly close to scoring a match-winning try for his country against the All Blacks two years ago.

He has 20 treis in 69 tests and is also handy with the boot from long distance if needed.

He will play an important role for Scotland as they look to show the sort of x-factor needed to go far in the tournament.
