Hogg: We need to learn from mistakes

STUART Hogg and his Scotland Under-20 team-mates may have endured a frustrating Friday in France, but the promising teenager is promising a warm welcome for Wales tonight.

And following the 49-5 defeat in Caen, Hogg is desperate to get their 6 Nations campaign back on track at Bridgehaugh.

Starting at full-back against the French, Hogg revealed there were plenty of positives to take from the match, and hoped they will have learned from their mistakes in what promises to be another tough encounter this evening.

The 18-year-old told the Hawick News: “We went out to France to go for the win and to take some pride out of the game.

“Although we were beaten convincingly, we took a lot out of the game. Our game plan was working but we just couldn’t hold onto ball.

“This week we have corrected our mistakes and we’re just looking onwards and upwards for tonight against Wales.

“The Welsh have a similar game plan as the French did, they look to attack wide and disrupt the breakdown at every opportunity.

“The team has trained well all week and we are all just looking forward to getting to right all the wrongs from last week.”
