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

I'm anti-Mexican wave, though only for codes like rugby...

Ruaidhri O'Connor - Irish Independent

“that’s the nature of Test rugby, you play in these very brief windows, then you have to wait and by the time our next competition comes up, the personnel could be different again."

Simon Lewis - Irish Examiner

"Ireland, very worryingly, were no closer to wearing Fiji down the further the match went on."

Mikey Traynor - is believed that Paris club Racing 92 are favourites to land his signature.

Duncan Smith - The Scotsman

Advantage should have run and Read should have been binned after for a professional foul
