Front Five - 21.03.16

Start your day with five eye-catching egg-chasing quotes & links from around the ruggersphere.
Later today on HarpinOnRugby…
our Ireland v Scotland writeup
is titled “Bully For Us”
Also today Ciaran Duffy writes up Glasgow v Leinster
and we’ve a new “unriggable raffle” comp this week
Sexton gets punched, throttled, countless cheap shots
and slammed to the turf over 5 matches
yet keeps getting back up for more.
So let's make it all about one over-reaction shall we.

This has been the most trying season Schmidt has endured in his six years back in Irish rugby.
Gerry Thornley - Irish Times

The Ireland coach won't ignore the Dubliner's claims when he leaves Leinster at the end of this season, but his unavailability for training sessions during Top 14 weeks is likely to diminish his prospects of featuring.
Ruairidh O'Connor - Irish Independent

Led in defence by Ross Ford and Duncan Taylor, the Scots were tackling hard but just gave Ireland far too much ball to play with
Rory Baldwin - Scottish Rugby Blog

I will renew (my season ticket) to make my contribution to the team I support so they can make plans accordingly to fund the DoR, new players, the Academy etc. Hopefully my faith will be rewarded with more good days out next season.
Gayl - WsetTerraceView

Poor from Sexton, appealing for it then going down holding his head like a footballer.
