Rugby Union: Logan has high hopes; Scotland ........ 33 Italy............ 25.

The 30-year-oldWasps winger bowed out of the championship on a high with a man-of-the-match display that helped the Scots retain fourth place thanks to a 33-25 success over Italy at Murrayfield.

Logan revealed his intention to quit international rugby at the end of the World Cup in November after marking his 61st appearance with one of his side's four tries.

``I thought we played well against England but they're a better team and you can't argue with that,'' said Logan.``I thought we built on that on Saturday.''

ENGLAND retained their Hong Kong Sevens crown with a pulsating 22-17 victory over IRB series leaders New Zealand in a stirring final worthy of this great tournament. Coach Joe Lydon said: ``To come here and defend the title with all the pressure and expectations on us was much more difficult..''
