Front Five - 29.01.16

Start your day with five eye-catching egg-chasing quotes & links from around the ruggersphere.
The whole “Lancaster leading the Lions” thing
made me roll my eyes at first
but you know what, there’s a decent case to be made for it
Still though, I think it should be Gatland or Schmidt
If the concept is to be taken seriously
Our Dragons v Leinster preview will post later this morning

"I'd have pretty good banter with Drico at any given time so it's not something that is a distraction" – Joe Schmidt
Ruaidhri O'Connor - Irish Independent

Dragons Director of Rugby Lyn Jones, has made four changes to the team that faced Sale Sharks

"Last weekend showed that Wales will be strong and very competitive this year. And it doesn’t get any easier after that with England and then France in Perpignan." - Tom Tierney
John Birch - ScrumQueens

...we cannot even consider starting the matches a month later, to give the sport a chance of establishing a global season from March to November that might transform its profile?
Oliver Brown - Telegraph

"He [Lancaster] has a lot of the credentials you could potentially look for in a Lions coach" - Lions CEO John Feehan
