Logan: Scots are ready

Kenny Logan

Former Scotland winger Kenny Logan believes the historic series win over Argentina offers hope that his country can break another duck against New Zealand.

Scotland will make their 28th attempt to overcome the All Blacks on November 13 in good spirits after claiming their first series victory in the southern hemisphere with a double triumph over the Pumas in June.

That followed victory over Ireland in Dublin and Logan, said: "It`s always a hard test against New Zealand. Every time we go into it the 20 players involved in the game always believe we can win."

He added: "The guys in the stadium will maybe think, `It will be good if we only get beat by this amount`. But we went to Argentina and had a phenomenal victory.

"I went over there when we got beat twice. We probably should have won one of them but it`s a hard place to go.

"The All Blacks is the game we want to win but we need to put in a good performance.

"I always believe if, in the last two or three minutes we are within five or six points, we can win the game and that`s what we have got to do.

"I think we can certainly give them a good run for their money, we can beat anyone on our day."
