Front Five - 14.10.16

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

Here at Harpin Manor of course we're excited 
about Leinster's European campaign...
we're excited every time they take the field.

We're still very underwhelmed by this competition
in its current format though.

entering its third season, there are still only two of the promised five commercial partners and the Challenge Cup will again be devalued by not awarding the winners a place in next year’s Champions Cup

Gerry Thornley - Irish Times


"I think what's more worrying is that you look around dressing-rooms now and the amount of pain killers that fly around before games."

Cian Treacy - Irish Independent


"Finally getting on the board against Edinburgh and backing it up against the only team we didn’t beat last year; that’s just brought confidence and momentum."

John Fallon - Irish Examiner


One of my personal favourite touches is the little flecks of colour on the sleeve and seams, it is just a really nice way to represent the home nations.

Those who have seen the All Blacks performing a haka live often remember the Māori tradition just as vividly as the rugby that follows.
