Rugby World Cup 2003: JIM'S TRIBUTE AS DUO BOW OUT.


SCOTLAND chief Jim Telfer last night paid heartfelt tribute to the national team's two retiring stars, skipper Bryan Redpath and Kenny Logan.

Telfer, who also quit after the game, said: ``I have been around all the time that they have been involved and both have been a credit to their country and the team.

``The appreciative reaction of the home crowd said it all and our fellows can go homewith their heads held high.'' An emotional Redpath admitted: ``It is hard to swallow on an occasion like this this was a great game in a great atmosphere.

``But the better team won because they took their chances and put us away.

``I have had 10 years with Scotland and I have loved most of it. There have been badtimes and there have been hard times. But this is what it was all about.

``I have had a wonderful time and I'm happy now I can watch and try not to criticise!''

Logan said: ``It has been an awesome 11 years. I have served under good coaches and had great times with Scotland.

``I feel privileged to be here and would love to have won. But we went out with heads held high.''
