British & Irish Lions fullback Stuart Hogg is in the spotlight after his team’s 27-9 loss to the Springboks in the second Test after footage has emerged in which the Scotsman appears to be biting the arm of Willie Le Roux.
However, Hogg, in a recent statement, categorically denies any biting:
"Following speculation that has surfaced online, I would like to categorically deny any foul play in last night’s game. I would never bite an opponent and I am annoyed and upset by this unsubstantiated accusation. I’ve always been proud of playing rugby in the spirit of the game.
"Respect to the Springboks for their deserved win yesterday. The squad is hurting after last night’s defeat, but it’s all to play for next week. It’s going to be a cup final and everyone’s going to be up for it."
