Hogg vows to celebrate with rum and milk

Have your say

STUART Hogg helped Scotland to their second successive victory over Australia on Tuesday.

And the 19-year-old later revealed he would toast the dramatic 9-6 win Down Under with a rum and milk tomorrow.

The young Teri, who is a member of the Mosstroopers, is missing this year’s Common-Riding due to his international commitments. But he has plenty to celebrate after playing his part in the first Scottish result over the Aussies on their own patch since 1982.

He said: “Thanks for all the messages from home. It’s a brilliant feeling to win for Scotland knowing how much it means to folk.

“And for the win to come in Common-Riding week will mean a wee rum and milk on Friday will taste that little bit sweeter.”

The teenager played the entire match at full-back at a sodden Hunter Stadium, in Newcastle, New South Wales. Along with teammates, he produced an epic second half defensive display before Greg Laidlaw kicked the winning points right at the death to retain the Hopetoun Cup.
