Front Five - 28.05.16

Start your day with five eye-catching egg-chasing quotes & links from around the ruggersphere.
Bon voyage to all travelling supporters
(and also best wishes to Exeter Chiefs!)

All week (Lam) has been trying to keep things as steady as possible and when I think back to (Munster's) first final 16 years ago, it's a wise policy.
Alan Quinlan - Irish Independent

Gerry Thornley - Irish Times

“Break Rob (baxter) in half and he’s got Exeter Rugby Club written through him” - Exeter chariman (chief?) Tony Rowe
Robert Kitson - The Guardian

Watch it, read it, live it, and love it. Rugby is breaking out in a big way and for those of us that have patiently been waiting for this moment it is nice to enjoy the ride. Ruck on.
Brendan Triplett - This Is American Rugby

More than likely, they are from either the western fringes of the province (that's Leinster) or they are from a core Gaelic football/hurling area and rugby is relatively new to them.

Feel free to share any interesting links you spot yourself about t’internet by email, Twitter, Facebook, Google+, blog comment or carrier pigeon – whatever works for you. JLP
