Front Five - 23.02.16

Start your day with five eye-catching egg-chasing quotes & links from around the ruggersphere.
Interesting how Matt Williams was silent after
Ireland’s performance exceeded expectations against Wales
yet he is back doing interviews again once things
went wrong against the French.  Coincidence?
He does speak some truth, however…

"The team that played against France, I think it was eight players, maybe nine, were in their 30s."
Raf Diallo - Newstalk's Off The Ball

Belvo scored five tries to Rock’s four as two exceptional teams racked up 64 points between them in one of the best games in recent schools history.
Cian Tracey - Irish Independent

Irish Times

Argentina won again despite playing like the developmental squad they are.
Jake Frechette - Rugby WrapUp

"Jackling as well, Goodey?"
Rugby Onslaught
[hat-tip Conor Cronin]
