Front Five - 30.10.15

Start your day with five eye-catching egg-chasing quotes & links from around the ruggersphere.
Very much looking forward to the big clash tonight
between two great rugby teams who are used
to playing each other more than once each year…
…and after I watch Munster play Ulster I suppose
I can force myself to sit through the utterly meaningless
so-called “Bronze final”.
Imagine how the provinces playing at Thomond
will feel if either Pienaar or Amorosino get injured?

...there have to be structures put in place that in times of need the provinces will be able to rely on each other for assistance.


Are you there, David?
