Front Five - 23.11.16

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

I still think the failure to sin bin Kieran Read 
for blatantly disrupting our 5m scrum
when the ABs were already a man down was
actually the official's biggest mistake
but's done.  We move on.

...after spending 10 minutes off the pitch, the centre returned to score the game's decisive try.

Ruaidhri O'Connor - Irish Independent


“I’d say I’m most happy with my ball carrying compared to last year when I was getting picked for tackling and defending."

John O'Sullivan - Irish Times


'Donnacha Ryan's taken on a Paulie-like role'

Sean Farrell -


The 25-year-old has been at Parc y Scarlets since joining Llanelli from his home club Waunarlwydd and the West Walians haven’t managed to qualify for a top-level European quarter-final in that time.

Rob Lloyd - WalesOnline


“I was out that night. I suppose things had to change within the Wallabies culture and I think we’ve become more professional since then and (going out for drinks is) probably not even going to happen”
