Hogg will win his 50th cap in Paris today and is in red-hot form, having scored twice in Scotland's 27-22 win over Ireland on the opening weekend.

Vern Cotter wants at least two wins from five games in the Six Nations for Scotland
France are looking to bounce back from a Six Nations defeat to England
Scotland coach Vern Cotter initially targeted two wins from the 2017 Six Nations and is already halfway to his goal.
And with a final weekend clash at home against Italy, beating France would likely see Scotland surpass that.
But Hogg knows that his side cannot afford to be shy in Paris.
"We'll have to look after the ball for long periods of play, play in the right areas and make sure we are always going forward," Hogg added.
"If we stand back and admire their play then we're going to be in for a long day.
"Defensively we need to try and get up in their faces, really shut them down.
"If we get opportunities in attack then we need to make the most of them and keep the scoreboard ticking over."
