Front Five - 24.08.16

Start your day with five eye-catching egg-chasing quotes & links from around the ruggersphere.

Normally these "competition launches"
are nothing but glorified photo-shoots
but yesterday's Guinness Pro12 media event
seemed to create quite a few talking points

"We’re happy we’re set up for a period if needs be. We just want to get the right person.”

Murray Kinsella -


There is a real determination within the Pro12 to shed its image as the poor relation of Europe's big three leagues

David Kelly - Irish Independent


"Sponsors like Guinness also appreciate that we have a ‘Fan First’ philosophy and that is why we have put on an Early Bird offer – where fans can save up to 20% on selected tickets"

Niamh O'Mahony - Pundit Arena


...there are some who are coming forward and saying that Jamie (Cudmore) basically lied about his situation and how bad it was. Hogwash.

Karen Gasbarino-Knutt - #rugbyunited blog


Robbie Henshaw is stepping up into his new role at Leinster as the star of the reveal video
