“After Rugby World Cup 2023, my professional rugby journey will end and I will be retiring from the game,” Hogg, who has represented Glasgow and Exeter at club level, confirmed in a statement.
“As a young kid growing up in The Borders, all I wanted to do was to play rugby for Scotland. I feel privileged to have represented my country on 100 occasions, play on three British and Irish Lions tours and represent some amazing clubs. I couldn’t have asked for any more.
“Rugby has allowed me to meet some incredible characters, make lifelong friends, travel the world and be part of some unbelievable experiences that I will cherish forever.”
In 2020, Hogg played all 80 minutes of Exeter’s European title final against Racing 92, winning league titles at Glasgow and Exeter.
Hogg continued: “Knowing what lies ahead, I Have a real hunger to play the best, most enjoyable rugby of my career, finishing the season strongly with Exeter Chiefs before attacking the opportunity we, as a nation, have in France.
“I don’t feel my body can achieve the standards that I set myself for much longer and I’ve always wanted to finish at the top end of the game.
“After the tournament, a new career beckons and I will attack it in the same manner as I play the game. I hope I have done you proud.”
At the World Cup 2023 this year, Scotland will play Ireland, South Africa, Tonga, and Romania in Pool B.
