The 27-year-old fullback, how has been capped 67 times by his country, said his team has to cut out the mistakes, including missed tackles, and finish scoring chances.

"We're not going to win Test matches if we're scoring two and conceding three," Hogg told the BBC. "Our defense has to be watertight and making sure we're on the money at every single opportunity."

The defensive side of the ball, added Hogg, "is probably at the forefront of our game. We've slipped up at times in pivotal moments in games gone past."

that might, in part, be a reference to last year's loss to the USA, when a key error in the second half helped turn the momentum tide toward the Eagles.
