Hogg upbeat on return

Scotland full-back Stuart Hogg says he expects to be back playing in the next "couple of weeks" ahead of the 2018 Six Nations.

The Glasgow Warriors has been out of action since aggravating a hip injury in the warm-up before Scotland's 53-24 victory over Australia back in November.

Having previously had a fractured cheekbone and a shoulder injury from the British & Irish Lions tour of New Zealand over the summer, it has been a frustrating spell for the 25-year-old.

However Hogg feels he is recovering well from his injury and hopes to be back in the thick of the action in the PRO14 with Glasgow in the next fortnight.

"Hopefully I'll be back on the pitch in the next couple of weeks and ready to rock and roll again," Hogg told BBC Radio 5 live.

"We're getting there now."

Scotland impressed during the autumn with wins over the Wallabies and Samoa, while also pushing world champions New Zealand all the way at Murrayfield.

Head coach Gregor Townsend and his side are now 15.00 to win the Six Nations, while England are 4.33 to retain their title.

Scotland are 2.37 to win and 1.57 to lose to Wales in their opening game of the Six Nations at the Principality Stadium on 3rd February.
