Former Scotland international Kenny Logan has labelled performances under head coach Scott Johnson "rubbish", while also questioning the Australian's selection policy.

Fans of Scottish rugby have endured some woeful displays in the current Six Nations campaign, although supporters were finally given something worth cheering as Scotland defeated Italy in the dying minutes a fortnight ago.

Logan said: "They've not been good. We've lacked any vision, our lineout's been poor, our scrum's been poor, our ball presentation's been poor. All the things that used to be good."

Speaking to QBE Rugby, Logan questioned Johnson's decision earlier in the tournament to drop high-profile players such as Richie Gray and captain Kelly Brown. Both men are in the starting XV for tomorrow's clash with France, but Logan is scornful of Johnson's tinkering.

Logan said: "I don't think he's got an idea of what he's doing with selection. He finished with the right team against Italy, but we shouldn't be thinking we have to beat Italy in order to have a successful season.

"We've managed to 'not get' the wooden spoon, which is not good enough. There's a lot of good players there, and the coaching's key to Scotland."

Moray Low returns to the matchday squad for tomorrow's fixture at Murrayfield. The prop will be on the bench after the withdrawal of Alasdair Dickinson, who has not sufficiently recovered from a calf injury. Geoff Cross keeps his place at tighthead in the starting XV.
