Front Five - 04.12.16

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

Is it me or does the comments section
underneath the Northampton statement
appear to be a little, er, "monitored"?
Of course we all hope George is ok
but I'd be very surprised if nobody left comments
on the insane decision to allow him to return.
He was out cold and should not have played on.
End of.

(UPDATE - apparently North himself denies he was unconscious.)  

If Munster's issue is depth then Leinster would see themselves a good deal more comfortable. And they weren't going to be discommoded by this opposition.

Brendan Fanning - Irish Independent

Mike Ruddock’s men hold a four-point lead at the league’s halfway point

Dave Mervyn -

Ruan Pienaar gave an almost faultless display controlling and dictating the game throughout

Richard Mulligan - Belfast Newsletter

The Wallabies have found all manner of ways to lose this year.

Jamie Miller - Green and Gold Rugby

Northampton Saints places the highest importance on player care and their safety is the club’s primary concern.
