Front Five – 30.12.15

Start your day with five eye-catching egg-chasing quotes & links from around the ruggersphere.

The comparisons to Sexton are obvious; he is a supreme goal-kicker, can take the ball to the line at risk of physical punishment in a quest to find runners to break open holes in opposing defences and he is unerringly accurate with his touch-finders.
David Kelly - Irish Independent

“There is a possibility of maybe the Scarlets game but it may be the Challenge Cup. Obviously you don’t want to take any risks until that’s firmly healed."
Kevin McGillicuddy -

“Les has come in and has made a difference, especially in respect of mental toughness."
Richard Mulligan - Belfast Newsletter

"The only game that I really struggled with was probably the Argentinian game...that’s that one game where you felt, ‘God, I could have been in there’."
John Fallon - Irish Times

The former Ulster centre is thought to be a long way off an international call-up, but if he keeps on scoring tries like these, Joe Schmidt and Co. may be forced to take note.
Brian Barry - Pundit Arena
