Hogg passed fit for Six Nations

13th January 2018, 15:01 by Chris Rivers

Glasgow head coach Dave Rennie says full-back Stuart Hogg should be back to full fitness in time for Scotland's Six Nations campaign.

The British & Irish Lion has not played since suffering a hip injury in the build-up to Scotland's final autumn international in November, but has been making good progress in his recovery from the problem.

The 25-year-old was in the mix to make Glasgow's squad for Sunday's European Champions Cup match against Leinster although the Warriors have decided to keep him back for next week's meeting with English champions Exeter.

Rennie says Glasgow have no concerns about Hogg not being ready for Sunday's game and is confident he will be firing on all cylinders by the time Scotland open their Six Nations campaign against Wales on February 3.

"We're confident he'll be alright [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."
