Front Five - 10.03.17

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

Interesting quote from Eddie Jones;
next we'll hear him accusing 
his predecessor Stuart Lancaster
of wiretapping his training sessions...

As the singing and cheering of 74,500 presumably fairly lubricated supporters reverberates around this sweaty and enclosed bearpit, this will be a pressure cooker occasion alright.

Gerry Thornley - Irish Times

“I’ve got a dreadful voice and there’s only one song I really know and that’s My Girl from Temptations”

Andy Howell - WalesOnline

There is little doubt that the two best teams in this year's tournament will compete for the Cup but 'Rock go into the game as slight favourites.

Cian Tracey - Irish Independent

...when Italy meet Les Bleus for the 40th time at the Stadio Olimpico, O'Shea will be hoping to scare a far bigger opponent for the second game in succession.

I thought we dealt with it fantastically well. There was someone confused in the first half and it wasn't our players.
