Scotland’s Hogg wins Six Nations player award

Stuart Hogg has won the Six Nations player award

Scotland full-back Stuart Hogg has won the 2016 Six Nations player of Championship award beating England’s Billy Vunipola.

Hogg won 30% of the public votes, with Billy Vunipola (27%) but the English man will be happy to have won the Grand Slam.

Wales winger George North – who scored the most tries in the tournament with four – came third in the vote with 11%.

Hogg was in superb form throughout the tournament but arguably his highlight was a fantastic solo try against Ireland.

“I played in a very good Scotland side these past few weeks, but to get the award is really pleasing,” Hogg told BBC Scotland.

“I was playing with confidence, I was having lots of fun as well. The game plan suited our back division and it was good to get a couple of wins on the board.

“For us now, that’s the minimum standard, we’ve got to be winning game after game and looking to win trophies.”
