Interview: Stuart Hogg on rugby, tragedy and growing up

It is lunchtime at the Oriam,
so the rugby men have swapped their boots for trainers and, in one case, a smart pair of slip-on loafers, to cross the vast indoor plains of the sports complex for a refuel. In the canteen there’s a funny moment when an attractive girl flips open her laptop and three beefy lads – perhaps a complete front row – flip open their mouths in unison, forkfuls of food suspended at the midway point. These are Scotland’s under-21s, the stars of tomorrow, their stories not yet told. Meanwhile the superstar of today is in full flow, 
talking about genealogy.
