Hogg is Six Nations Player of the Championship
The ‘Glasgow Warrior’, as they call him, helped Scotland win two games of their five Six Nations games, including a memorable victory on home soil against France.
Hogg scored fantastic tries against France and Ireland and was in outstanding form throughout the tournament. On gaining the award he said, “I’m honoured to receive the RBS Player of the Championship Trophy and enter the history books with a bunch of other great rugby players that have achieved this trophy in the Six Nations. I’m also grateful for the public for voting me, it means a lot, thanks.”
Hogg performed excellently throughout the tournament; his solo try in Scotland’s last game against Ireland in Dublin will be remembered for years to come.
Billy Vunipola gained 27 per cent of the public votes. His powerhouse displays were instrumental in England winning their 13th grand slam. Third place was the top try scorer, George North of Wales, who gained 11 per cent of the votes.
Injuries permitting, all three players seem certainties for the 2017 Lions tour of New Zealand.
