Scotland have had to wait a while for their first try in the 2020 Guinness Six Nations – and it arrived in spectacular style from full-back Stuart Hogg.
After failing to cross the whitewash in defeats to Ireland and England, it took Gregor Townsend’s side 22 minutes to end their drought against Italy at the Stadio Olimpico.
There did not appear to be much on when Hogg collected Adam Hastings’ pass just inside Scotland’s half.
But Hogg carved open Italy’s defence with a fine dummy before using his blistering pace to get around Jayden Hayward and then finished in the corner with a dive.
The stunning score was the perfect response by Hogg, who faced criticism after dropping the ball over the try-line against Ireland in Round One, and he made sure to complete the dot-down this time.
