Front Five - 26.01.17

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

Six Nations launch time!
Hardly the most exciting day
in the rugby calendar, but it shows
the fun is about to begin!!!

From experience you never know when you are being told the whole story about players' injuries. We are told that Sexton and O'Brien have calf injuries so I will take that as the case.

Neil Francis - Irish Independent

“I’ve talked to the coaches and the players and it was not a deliberate tactic to injure Conor Murray."

Simon Lewis - Irish Examiner

"It’s always been a factor that if you play well, you win. If you play really well, you win with a bonus point. It’s as simple as that." - Eddie Jones

Rugby World

“Results didn’t go our way in November but we came up against three really good sides and we learned a lot from those defeats." - Niamh Briggs

Rugby Redefined

A glowing endorsement indeed.
