Watch: Hogg Scores Early Try For Scotland Following More Than Fortuitous Bounce

Stuart Hogg gave Scotland the perfect start against Samoa on Saturday after going over underneath the posts with just ninety seconds gone on the clock. 

After earning an early turnover and going through some phases, the Scots manage to break the Samoan defence.

A chip ahead by fly-half Finn Russell is kicked on by winger Tommy Seymour and Hogg gathers following a mistimed catch by the opposition to go over underneath the posts.

Finn Russell added the extras to give Gregor Townsend’s men an early 7-0 lead over the Pacific Islanders.

The try was Hogg’s 17th in 54 Tests for his country.

After having his Lions tour cruelly cut short by a freak accident against the Crusaders, the 25 year-old has bounced back superbly, putting in a string of excellent performances for his club.

Scotland also face New Zealand and Australia this month as they build for the 2019 World Cup and for next year’s Six Nations.
