HAWICK’S British and Irish Lion Stuart Hogg has teamed up with Scotland’s oldest family jeweller.

The 20-year-old has been signed by Laing Edinburgh, from whom he received a top-of-the-range Omega watch, and the Scotland star quipped that he’ll now have to make sure he gets to training on time.

“It’s great to be associated with such a long-standing and respected family business as Laing Edinburgh and I look forward to working with them,” said Hogg.

“The next few months represent a very important time for me in my career and now I’ll have no excuse for being late for training!”

Hogg, who turns 21 on the Lions tour, is the 12th player from Hawick to be selected for Lions duty, 125 years on from the first tour.
