Five players who’ve ‘gone backwards’ in the last eight months

#3. Stuart Hogg (Scotland)

World ranking 2020 via Wales Online: #46 – “The dangerous runner from deep is a double-winner with Exeter Chiefs and has been integral to Scotland’s improvement.”

How it turned out: The Scotland captain’s year got off to the perfect start as he left his country to a historic victory against England at Twickenham – but it’s been all downhill since.

Stuart Hogg

Dropped by Exeter Chiefs boss Rob Baxter for the Gallagher Premiership semi-final and subsequent final after a loss of form.

A tough tour with the Lions, which was disrupted by isolation, followed. After finally making his first test start, Hogg was dropped after a poor second Test under an aerial assault.

No longer considered the best fullback in the world – but still a very good player.

DID YOU KNOW? In the Six Nations, Hogg was twice named player of the tournament- in 2016 and 2017
