Front Five - 06.03.17

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

Personally I feel the Welsh match is more
about winning the Six Nations title than
building for 2019 and if Joe feels more
comfortable with Payne at 13 he should pick him
provided Ringrose is at very least on bench

It’s increasingly likely that Lam and Madigan will spend their first season at the English club, funded by 64-year-old billionaire Stephen Lansdown, outside the Premiership.

Gavin Cummiskey - Irish Times

Payne has never let Ireland down. He has come in for some unfair criticism, but he is commonly thought to be the best defensive back in the squad.

Ruaidhri O'Connor - Irish Independent

“Ireland will come flying at Wales. Their half-backs Conor Murray and Johnny Sexton are playing very well."

Andy Howell - WalesOnline

The pictures are truly shocking and it should have been enough to see Palisson withdrawn from the fray.

Pat McCarry -

Ross Byrne is really maturing at fly half, putting in pinpoint cross field kicks for Adam Byrne (also playing out of his skin), who offloaded to Ed Byrne for one of the tries.
