Front Five - 17.01.18

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

I'm on board with Grobler being given
a chance on account of 'having done his time'
but there's still a question of transparency from his
signing that needs to be addressed

“He goes through video work with us on his positional play. His ball-in-hand skills are excellent. The speed and accuracy of his passing is excellent. He is constantly learning. He has shown that he’s not phased by big occasions“

Simon Lewis - Irish Examiner

" far as we're concerned, 'GG', he's done his time. He's done his two years from WADA and the Rugby Players' Association"

Rúaidhrí O'Connor - Irish Independent

A simple part of the sport, one of the ‘basics,’ but even at 35, Nacewa is still doing those things better than most.

Murray Kinsella - The4

“These are people who sell morality when they do not have it. The same people who have ministers who are whipped in private but considered ‘clean’ guys in public.”

”If you could make one change to the Pro 14 structure what would it be?”

”Brainwash the Welsh into thinking 'Pro14 good, Aviva Prem bad'. Deep down they know it makes sense!”

Dave Blair - Belfast Rugby Bulletin
