Front Five - 28.01.18

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

The serious rugby is about to begin...
and as well as the Leinster Schools Cup
there's also the Six Nations 😜

...Ireland surely has a manufacturer of back row forwards somewhere just outside Dublin that hand-crafts ballsy breakaways who are three quarters elbow and two thirds attitude.

Iain Morrison - The Scotsman

"We went out for dinner last night - and this is not a lie - a fox ran out in front of us. I thought Eddie had released it as a joke"

Charlie Morgan - Irish Independent

Youngs is now 28 but remains fresh-faced, unscarred by the demands of an increasingly brutal sport that every week seems to claim a long-term injury victim.

Paul Rees - The Guardian

Wales will have to go into their matches with Scotland, England and Ireland with a relatively inexperienced fly-half.

In no other sport does a breeding ground quite like the Leinster Schools Senior Cup exist...
