Gabby Logan’s son picks England over Scotland, tipped for Six Nations call-up

In the illustrious saga of the Calcutta Cup, one of rugby’s most storied rivalries, this weekend’s clash will not only pit two nations against each other but also divide a proud rugby lineage.

Reuben Logan carries a name steeped in rugby glory, yet his journey diverges from that of his father, the esteemed Kenny Logan, who graced the field in the iconic blue of Scotland for 70 illustrious caps.

While the echoes of his father’s legacy resonate, young Logan has charted his own course. Despite initially training with Scotland at the Under-17s level, he adorned the red rose in last year’s Under-18s Six Nations Festival, and now finds himself in the esteemed ranks of England’s burgeoning Under-20s squad, a testament to his burgeoning talent and unwavering dedication.

“It was an interesting conversation,” said Logan, recalling the moment he informed his dad of his choice.

“He realised I’ve got to do what’s best for me. He was a bit hurt at the start, but I explained that it was not his career anymore and he said fair play.

“He’s been really supportive, really helpful. He used to drive me up and down to Northampton, to Henley, and to England camps, so he’s been really helpful in my development.

There was a third option, courtesy of mum and television icon Gabby, who represented Wales in the Commonwealth Games, but the 18-year-old was encouraged to come to his own conclusions.

“I didn’t really know when I was younger,” said Logan, who attended school and lives in the south-east of England. “When I got older, I realised that was the avenue I wanted to go down.

“Dad said do what’s best for you, which I really appreciated.

“They both want me to play well and play good rugby, so whatever crest is on my shirt, hopefully they’ll be proud of me.”
