Front Five – 08.04.16

Start your day with five eye-catching egg-chasing quotes & links from around the ruggersphere.
It’s Champions Cup quarterfinal weekend
and Irish teams are not involved.
That is of course a shame but we need to deal with it,
put moaning about it aside and give our full support

…this weekend Irish eyes will be on him more than ever, not least of all because of a match up with Robbie Henshaw.
Johnny Watterson - Irish Times

Dean Ryan - Guardian

It has come right down to the wire in Division 1A
Daragh Small - Irish Independent

"Our home record is good, and we are proud of it and doing our utmost to keep it intact on Friday."
Frank Nickson - Talking Rugby Union

"...we think their winger is just slightly over age"
