Front Five - 16.10.16

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

Interesting piece from Brendan Fanning
about the politics amongst the "alickadoos"
Sadly it shapes our game more than
what happens on the pitch or what the fans want

"Munster are more bothered about getting more schools playing the game and Connacht will just play along. Ulster and Leinster are the problems."

Brendan Fanning - Irish Independent


Head coach Leo Cullen said Sexton’s hamstring injury is a “low-grade one, if anything.”

Murray Kinsella -


Connacht won deservedly here and they did so in the new Connacht tradition of bold imagination and dazzling speed of hand and thought.

Keith Duggan - Irish Times


"...if we track too much into the history, you know, where do we stop? How far do you go back?

Simon Lewis - Irish Examiner


"He is very well integrated and as we thought, bought into the Bordeaux project. He has already spoken about extending his stay. He is happy here."

Alan Drumm - Pundit Arena
