The former Scotland winger Kenny Logan started his first Six Nations match in 1993 and didn’t score a try in the Championship until seven years later, against Ireland, at Dublin’s Lansdowne Road in 2000.

If you’re a football man, determinedly of that persuasion and a bit sneering with it, then you might view Tony Stanger’s Hawick as the sporting equivalent of the flat earth society, a place where they believe that when leather and air conjoin the result must always be egg-shaped. Anything else
