Scotland full-back Stuart Hogg has already set his sights on a British & Irish Lions Test start - just three weeks after watching from the stands as the tourists overpowered Australia for a first series win in 16 years.

The 21-year-old was the youngest member of Warren Gatland's squad and although he impressed in the warm-up games, failed to make the bench for any of the clashes with the Wallabies.

The Glasgow star is now relishing the prospect of New Zealand with the Lions in 2017, and said: "I had nothing to lose down there. I wasn't expected to be in a starting position but in the end I played five of the 10 games.

"So I'm happy enough with how it went. Obviously I was disappointed not to be involved in the Test teams but when you are sitting behind the man (Leigh Halfpenny) who gets named man of the series, it takes a bit of the pain away.

"When the team was named for the last match of the tour and I found out I wasn't going to play in the final Test, it just made me all the hungrier to be involved next time.

"It's four years away and I'll concentrate on Glasgow and Scotland until it comes around. But getting a Test slot is my main target."
