Stuart Hogg comes out of retirement and agrees two-year deal

Back in action.

Former Scotland, Lions and Exeter Chiefs fullback Stuart Hogg has agreed a deal to come out of retirement and return to professional rugby.

Montpellier owner Mohed Altrad has confirmed that Hogg will join the Top 14 outfit on a two-year contract with the option for a third.

The deal has officially been confirmed just days after Montpellier retained their Top 14 status after narrowly beating Grenoble in a relegation play-off game on Sunday evening.

Hogg has been dealing with a number of personal issues in recent months, having completed some time in rehab.

What his return means for his international career with Scotland and if he’ll make himself available, remains to be seen.
