Stuart Hogg's hat-trick for Glasgow Warriors against Munster

Teenager Stuart Hogg scored an impressive hat-trick of tries to earn Glasgow Warriors a losing bonus point in their RaboDirect Pro 12 game against Munster last weekend. The home side, playing at Musgrave Park on Saturday night, won the game 35-29.

Ian Keatley scored 20 points while Luke O’Dea and Peter O’Mahony crossed for tries, but it was 19 year-old Scotland sensation Hogg that caught the eye, scoring his third try on fulltime.

“Stuart Hogg was outstanding, as an individual effort in attack he was fantastic, it was just disappointing that we couldn’t back it up with a good defensive display,” said coach Sean Lineen.

“The first try was a brilliant solo effort and the second, when he took a lovely pass from Colin Shaw, was an absolute beauty. We showed some tremendous character in that second half to come back and take a losing bonus point, but Stuart took his tries really well.”

Glasgow must win their next two games, against Treviso on Sunday and then Connacht on May 5, to qualify for the play-offs. Lineen says that they are happy with the bonus point, but can’t underestimate the Italian side this coming weekend.

“To take that away from Munster is a great display and it gives us a lot of positives to work on going into Treviso next week. It is going to be incredibly hard – they are a very impressive team, well drilled and very experienced,” he said.

Below are the three tries that Hogg scored, not only because they were requested all through the week, but because they’re pretty decent, and the young man clearly has bags of talent.

    @ Reality Hurley wasn't even playing. O'Dea was the player (about 6 inches smaller) and is a great speedster. The fact that Hogg is faster doesn't bother me, it happens. And Hogg also had the momentum coming through no biggie. Though, Munster have conceeded a ton more tries this season than normal, no Dougie or Dowling (a great defender) I guess.

    AS a very proud Munster supporter and member of the supporters club I can honestly say I have no problem with the rolling of the ball, he got up from scoring a try left the ball on the line and ran back with his team mates, i wish more would celebrate a try like this, certainly better than swallow dives and SOCCER celebrations! Great prospect, if he can produce at centre it would go a long way to fixing Scotland's long term problems, good luck to him!

    Stop being a tool, we have had plenty Rob Henderson springs to mind, the Celtic nations have a small player base and sometimes are lucky enough to have a top class player with links to the country want to play for given nation, none of whom are mentioned by you. If this was aimed at Eng you may have a small point as they have a huge league the largest player pool in the world and the richest union yet still are prob the biggest user of the three year rule for players who have arrived as pofessionals. Either way your comments are way off for this audience!

    Just because he was born in America doesn't make him automatically American. O'Gara grew up in Ireland, so he should be considered Irish, as evidenced by the fact that he has an Irish accent. Tom Court is Australian, born and raised. And Doug, it's typical for Perth? If you say so. I've never been there, but I didn't realise people from Perth sounded so English.

    Ah, that explains the thick English accent they have.

    Mafi tackled him well before the line, and then immediately let him go after the ball was put down. Was he supposed to just let him in unopposed? Maybe he could have guided him closer to the posts as well to make things easier.

    Id disagree to be honest, he did that after mafi was hilding onto him when he was trying to get up, he did the same against the saxons when he scored and a defender tried to tackle him after he scored. I dont think its a thing to be praised but i tthink we need a bit of arrogance in the national side in order to progress

    This guy seems like a super player. First he impressed in the Six Nations and now here as well; he doesn't appear to be a one hit wonder. Does anyone know where he's from? Is he Scottish, or is he 'Scottish' like the Lamont and Evans brothers? Also, Denis Hurley once again shown up for his lack of pace. It's really just embarrassing that a winger is beaten so easily like that. And Marcus Horan has us all asking, "When is he going to retire?".

    Why are you trying to taunt Larry Murphy? Won't end well for you.

    I enjoyed watching what he brought to Scotland in the 6 nations, hopefully for Scotland and Glasgows sake he will keep his game up to scratch and have a full career.

    Yeah I didn't like the show of unsportsmanlike play, rolling the ball toward the guy. However, all in all great play. Just needs to learn some respect for the game.
