Hogg In For 6 Nations
Written by RockSport on January 12, 2018
Glasgow Warriors head coach Dave Rennie says Scotland full-back Stuart Hogg will be fit for the Six Nations next month.
Hogg has not played since injuring his hip during the Scots’ autumn series.
He narrowly missed a spot on the bench for Warriors’ European Champions Cup meeting with Leinster on Sunday.
“We’re confident he’ll be all right [for the Six Nations] – expect to see him on the park against Exeter [next week].” Rennie said.
“We think [Hogg will be back] next week. The original plan was to bring him off the bench this week and give him a start against Exeter. He’s close but we’re not going to push that, so expect him next week.
“We want him to be fully right and have a full week of training. The groin is good, he had a little complaint with his foot and hasn’t got the amount of running this week that we’d want so we’ll give him one more week.”
Glasgow sit bottom of Pool 3 and are already out of the Champions Cup with two games to play – Leinster away on Sunday and Exeter at Scotstoun on Saturday, 20 January.
Rennie says his side “certainly won’t be lying down” and insists the matches can prove beneficial to his Warriors, particularly with the Six Nations looming.
