Start your day with five eye-catching egg-chasing quotes & links from around the ruggersphere.
titled “A view of Connacht from the dark side”

Born and reared in Clifden, and having come through the ranks of Garbally College, Galwegians and the Connacht academy, O’Halloran has flourished at fullback with his licence to thrill.
Gerry Thornley - Irish Times

Sexton admitted that he struggled to settle back into his old surrounds following the World Cup but his flawless display at the RDS proved that he is back to his best.
Cian Tracey - Irish Independent

"It will be my fourth PRO12 final and the standard simply rises every year."
James Dale - Sky Sports

Connacht will attack Leinster in Saturday’s Guinness Pro12 final at Murrayfield with a combination of clever set-piece moves, their 2-4-2 shape in attack and a razor-sharp exploitation of space.
Murray Kinsella -

...there are times when, in the heat of battle, players invariably lose their cool, sometimes spectacularly.
Gary Brennan - Pundit Arena
