Logan's run ends on a high
Kenny Logan celebrates Scotland's victory over Italy
Logan celebrates at the final whistle
Scotland winger Kenny Logan ended his Six Nations career with a man-of-the match performance in Scotland's 33-25 win over Italy.

Talking to BBC Sport after the tense victory, the Wasps winger was delighted to play a vital role in his last international appearance at Murrayfield.

"I won't be back here playing again so it's nice to end the Six Nations like that," said Logan, who was winning his 61st cap.

"I knew this was my last year of international rugby, so I just want to keep working hard and make it to the World Cup."

Logan, who crossed the line for Scotland's third try of the day shortly before half-time, had mixed feelings about a patchy performance against the brave Italians.

"It was good to score some tries again, but we defended poorly at times - that's something we'll have to work on."

"But we can go to South Africa in the summer and build on this performance."

"Hopefully, we can get it right for the World Cup after that.

"It was good to score myself. I don't get many for Scotland," said Logan after his 13th try for his country.

"We worked hard as a team and took our opportunities when they came."

We're showing signs of getting better

The match also marked Scotland coach Ian McGeechan's last match in charge at Murrayfield and Logan was quick to praise the man who will step up to director of rugby after the World Cup.

"Geech has put a lot of hard work into this side over the years.

"He'll be excited about the win and he'll want us to build on that - you can't build on defeats."

Scotland's only other win in the RBS Six Nations table came against Wales, resulting in a fourth place finish in the standings.

"It's been a difficult couple of months," conceded Logan.

"But we're showing signs of getting better. It's just a pity the tournament is over now."
