Six Nations: Logan's errors let us off hook, admits Jones

Welsh international Robert Jones has added further insult to injury on Kenny Logan by claiming that the Scot is "a long way short" of being a world-class goalkicker.

Welsh international Robert Jones has added further insult to injury on Kenny Logan by claiming that the Scot is "a long way short" of being a world-class goalkicker.

The Wasps man was guilty of spurning a number of kicks during the 28-28 draw with Wales on Murrayfield.

But Jones insists that Scotland need to find the equivalent of Wales’ goalkicker if they are to improve.

"If Scotland had a kicker half as good as Neil Jenkins, we would have lost it’s as simple as that," Jones said.

"Every other national team has a world-class goalkicker but Kenny Logan falls a long way short of that category."

But Jones admitted that Logan’s misses should not have mattered after Scotland fought back from a 19-point deficit to force the draw.

"When one side is 19 points clear in international rugby, that should be it," said Jones.
