Stuart Hogg provides fitness update on his ankle ahead of Argentina clash
Stuart Hogg insists he is fine and good to go against Argentina this Saturday after his injury scare against South Africa.
But Hogg appeared before the media yesterday to declare it was panic over. “I just rolled my bad ankle, got it caught in a tackle. It was a little bit achy but nothing I haven’t had before,” he said.
“I tried to hide for a while but then they kicked it straight to me!
“It feels grand today and I’m just ready to crack on with a new week. I woke up this morning feeling much better than I did yesterday. I got the recovery done and I’m looking ahead to Saturday.
“I felt more dejected to come off, if I’m being honest,” he said. “Doc [James] Robson and [coach] Gregor [Townsend] made the call and I respect their decision.
“The game was just starting to open up a little but so it is frustrating that these things happen, but it is just part and parcel of playing rugby that you pick up these little niggles every now and then.
“It is frustrating to come off but the boys gave everything and unfortunately just came up short.”
