Hogg didn’t feature in the 2-1 Test series victory Down Under and missed Glasgow’s opening win in the PRO12 against Cardiff Blues but returned to full effect as the Warriors travelled to Ulster.
Trailing 12-6 at half-time at Ravenhill, Hogg, who kicked two penalties for Glasgow in the first half, was on hand to convert James Eddie’s last-gasp try for a 13-12 victory.
That maintained Glasgow’s unbeaten start to the new PRO12 season with fellow Lions squad member Ryan Grant also returning for the Warriors like Hogg.
And coach Townsend couldn’t get enough of Hogg and the way Glasgow stuck at the task in hand.
“Credit to our players, they kept believing. We put a huge effort in defensively in the second half and, when we managed to get the ball, we did some great things to get close to the line and we were delighted to see James Eddie going over for that try,” he said.
“We gave away too many penalties in the first half and, in the second half, we didn’t look after the ball well enough. We’ve got a lot of improving to do.
“We know we’ve got to be better, but we take a win. It is the first time a Scottish side have won here since 2009, so it is a great win because it is a real tough place to come and play.”
