Stuart Hogg: 5/10 (32/33)

A surprisingly quiet Rugby World Cup for the man from Hawick. When you consider some of the swashbuckling tries he’s scored in his 7 year Scotland career, it’s pretty surprising that the Exeter bound fullback hasn’t added to his 19 try tally in this tournament. His sole points came from a wonderful long range drop goal against Samoa in Kobe. It wasn’t for lack of trying, but he was a well marked man and it often looked like he’s was trying to force attacks when they weren’t on. Defensively he put in the effort around the field, but was caught out of position a few times against both Ireland and Japan. A Rugby World Cup is an unfortunate time for a dip in form, but it confirms that the British Lion is human after all.
