STUART Hogg has been selected on the bench for tomorrow’s match against the Rebels in Melbourne.

The 20-year-old missed out on Saturday’s Test team as the Lions scraped an opening victory by 23 points to 21 against Australia.

Head coach Warren Gatland has quarantined most of his Test stars ahead of this weekend’s second Test in Melbourne and has named a second-string team to race the Rebels.

Hogg has made an impact in the warm-up matches, both at full-back and fly half, and will be hoping to give Gatland something to think about ahead of Saturday’s match.
