Rugby star Stuart Hogg has been named Six Nations player of year - for the second time in a row.

Hogg, who is from Hawick, received nearly a quarter of the votes in the public poll.

The honour crowns an excellent Six Nations for the 24-year-old full back who was showered with praise during the tournament with one pundit describing him as “the most dangerous attacking back in the northern hemisphere”.

Hogg, who plays his club rugby with Glasgow Warriors, was selected from a shortlist of 12 outstanding players.

Last year Hogg picked up the same award with over 30 per cent of the vote.
