This weekly “Biggest Underperformers” piece is dedicated to calling out players who didn’t play as well as they can in the second round of the 2020 Six Nations.
As a rule, I avoid putting players on the list if they were injured during the game.
1. Stuart Hogg (Scotland)
One lovely kick-return could not save a difficult day for Scotland’s captain. For the second weekend in a row, a big error cost his team. His mistake gave England the field position from which Ellis Genge scored. Conceded three turnovers in total.
Unpopular rugby opinion: Stuart Hogg is very much over rated. Evidence? Pretty much every big game. Club and country— GavtheSalaryCap (@GavtheSarrie) February 8, 2020
