Glasgow & Scotland Star Stuart Hogg Suffers Devastating Injury Blow


Scotland and Glasgow Warriors fullback will be out of action for the next 8-12 weeks after he underwent ankle surgery on Thursday.

The injury was sustained during Glasgow’s Round 2 PRO14 win over Munster, and rules him out of Glasgow’s Champions Cup games next month, as well as Scotland’s entire November International Series.

“I’m gutted to be missing some important games for Glasgow Warriors and Scotland over the next few months.” Hogg said

“My focus just now is working hard and getting fit, so I can play my part in what is a long season.

“I’d like to thank the medical staff at Glasgow Warriors and BMI Ross Hall Hospital for all their care and support.”

Glasgow Warriors coach Dave Rennie said:

“Hoggy injured his ankle in the game against Munster and then flew to South Africa with the squad for our PRO14 matches against the Cheetahs and the Kings.

“He didn’t train over here as it often takes a few days for the swelling to go down and he returned home when we realised it was more serious than we thought.

“It’s frustrating for him. He got himself in extremely good nick for the start of the season and was arguably one of the best players on the park in the opening two games. But it’s a long old season, he’s a resilient man and we’re looking forward to seeing him back out there soon.”
