Hogg named player of Six Nations

Scotland’s Stuart Hogg has been voted the Six Nations player of the championship.

The award was decided by a combination of an online poll, of which Hogg secured over 30 per cent, and a panel of former rugby players.

Hogg, who made his 43rd appearance in a Scottish shirt during the Championship, said: “I’m honoured to receive the player of the championship trophy and join the list of the esteemed players that have won in the past.

“I’m extremely grateful for all the supporters who voted for me.”

England’s Billy Vunipola came a close second with 27 per cent of the vote, with third place awarded to the tournament’s top-try scorer George North and Ireland’s halfback Conor Murray in fourth.
