Hogg patient over Scotland

Full-back Stuart Hogg is prepared to be patient over his Scotland ambitions after continuing his excellent form in Glasgow Warriors' 20-15 Heineken Cup win over Montpellier.

Scotland head coach Andy Robinson was present at Firhill and will surely be considering calling on Hogg for the RBS 6 Nations if he maintains man-of-the-match displays such as Sunday's.

The 19-year-old said: "It's a dream to play in a Scotland jersey, so hopefully one day it will come. Right now I'm just happy to be in the Glasgow team and I'm really working hard on my game. I've still got plenty of time."

Hogg's performance came during Rory Lamont's second Glasgow debut, the Scotland international having re-signed following his release by Toulon.

Lamont was brought in as a full-back, but played on the wing, with Hogg justifying the decision with a number of searing bursts from deep through the Montpellier defence.

Hogg praised Lamont, having received advice throughout the match, but is determined to keep his place in the team.

He said: "It's just a case of knuckling down in training and hopefully when the team's picked my name will be on it."
