Front Five - 12.12.16

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

Despite what the bookies say
surely even the most one-eyed Welsh fan
can't dispute that Best has to be ahead
of Warburton for Lions captain
based on current form???

(imagine if there was a
competition for "Most One-eyed Welsh Fan"!!!
That would make quite the reality show) looks likely that Ross Byrne will lead their backline for the rest of December.

Ruairdhi O'Connor - Irish Independent

"...there is a lot to admire about Rory and his game." - Gatland

Anthony Woolford - WalesOnline

"...we had a chance to get something out of the game and we didn’t take it." - Pat Lam

Gerry Thornley - Irish Times

When Sam Whitelock, Brodie Retallick and Luke Romano all missed out on the Test against Ireland in Chicago, this was a weakness an astute coach like Joe Schmidt couldn’t ignore.

Graham Spalding - The Roar

"To not know the captain's name in the second half pulling him to one side to have a quiet word - he really should know that."
