Front Five - 08.02.17

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

What about Irish, Wayne?  HUH?  ;-)

“In the lineout you have to try to stay as far away from him as possible, because he’s able to cover the last few feet virtually on his own."

Simon O'Keeffe - Pundit Arena

Interestingly, no side managed a four-try bonus in any of the three contests while Ireland and France derived some consolation in defeat by returning from an away fixture with a losing bonus point for their efforts.

Donal Lenihan - Irish Examiner

A tribute to just how highly regarded the great man was.

Conor Heneghan -

"...his most recent memory of the stadium isn’t a good one. It wasn’t a great day for him or the Wallabies. He went back home and lost his job."

Mark Orders - WalesOnline

"If you take the Six Nations and the Rugby Championship, there is English, Italian, French and Spanish - and you could put in Welsh on top of that - it's quite difficult to cover them all"

Chris Jones - BBC Rugby
