Austin Healey calls out 'off-the-ball' hit that ended Stuart Hogg's game

Austin Healey has called out an off the ball hit that ended Scotland fullback Stuart Hogg’s match against Ireland in Murrayfield this afternoon.

Hogg hobbled off clutching his groan shortly after Ireland scored their first try through Conor Murray, apparently after taking an off the ball hit from Irish backrow Peter O’Mahony.

The BBC cameras either didn’t pick up the contact, or at the very least decided it didn’t warrant replay.

Healey wasn’t best pleased: “Why haven’t they shown the hit on Hogg after chip that Led to Ireland’s first try” he tweeted.

Plenty agreed with his sentiment, including fellow BT commentator Lawrence Dallagio.

The SRU later confirmed that it was a shoulder injury that the fullback had suffered.
