Front Five - 28.04.16

Start your day with five eye-catching egg-chasing quotes & links from around the ruggersphere.
Normally I say forget the past and focus on the future
but not when it comes to disciplinary rulings
The Farrell decision is one clearly designed
to make sure he can play in the Champions Cup final
and it happens too often (yes to Leinster & Irish players too)

"For some reason people are linking it to head knocks. Crazy talk."
Johnny Watterson - Irish Times

"They got the timing of it entirely wrong."
Raf Diallo - Newstalk's "Off The Ball"

"Would I be happy with Chris Henry, Robbie Diack and Roger Wilson playing in the back-row for Ulster next season going into the first European Cup game? Definitely not."
Cian Tracey -

"These types of opportunities only come around once and I couldn't turn it down."
Lewis Hughes - Talking Rugby Union

He will miss the Premiership matches against Newcastle Falcons and Worcester Warriors but will be eligible for the Champions Cup final against Racing 92 in Lyon on 14 May.
Ryan Bailey -
