Teen Hogg is eager to make amends.
After strong performances in defeat against Wales and France, the 19-year-old Glasgow Warriors back was starved of ball in attack in the 32-14 loss in Dublin, while also struggling under the high ball.
The result in Ireland leaves Scotland facing a wooden spoon decider in Rome this weekend and Hogg is eager to improve on his display.
"I didn't have enough ball, but I think my confidence dropped a little after dropping a couple of high balls," he said.
"As a full-back you've got to take them, no matter how much pressure you're under. Watch Ireland's Rob Kearney, for instance.
"I base my game on him because he's unbelievable in the air. It's a target to get to - to be as good as him."
