Rugby Union: Keep on smiling - Hogg.

ALLISTER Hogg has urged his Scotland team-mates to keep on smiling despite the huge challenge they face against England tomorrow.

Scotland have endured a torrid start to this season's RBS 6 Nations campaign, having lost all three matches played so far by an average of 19 points per game.

However, Hogg is a firm believer in always looking on the bright side.

"Everything does seem a bit harder when the results are going against you, but you've got to keep being positive or you are never going to improve things," said the happy-go-lucky flanker.

"The challenges keep getting bigger - England at home is a massive occasion - but you play international rugby because you want to test yourself against the best players and the biggest teams.

"We want to give the fans something to cheer about, and we want to do it for ourselves as well. We want to go out and prove we are a good rugby team by playing quality rugby."
