Front Five - 05.03.16

Start your day with five eye-catching egg-chasing quotes & links from around the ruggersphere.
Are Connacht the Leicester City of the Pro12?
(meaning I support both Leinster & Spurs yet wouldn’t

Sean Farrell -

Connacht came with a simple, high-tempo game plan which they executed with an equal lack of fuss and mistakes. They resembled Japan in the World Cup, only with added ambition.
Iain Morrison - The Scotsman

Two tries in each half was enough to give Les Kiss side the maximum points.
Richard Mulligan - Belfast Newsletter

"It seems crazy that rugby is compulsory and part of a school's curriculum. I don't care how steeped in history your school is,"
Irish Independent

" drew an eruption of laughter from some of Toulon’s shocked senior players who were also taking part."
Alan Drumm - Pundit Arena
