Front Five - 04.02.18

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

So I'm getting on the bus yesterday evening in downtown Dublin when the driver says to me...  

"Got out of jail, eh?"  "I'm sorry???"

He repeats. Awkward silence. Then he points to my Irish Rugby beanie...

", yeah big time!"   Twas a cracking day.

A combination of bravery and skill, it was the kind of scenario kids play out in their back gardens - which for 99.9 per cent of them is where it stays.

Despite a gutsy display, the inexperience within Ireland's squad proved costly against a much stronger French outfit.

RTÉ Rugby

...the chasing pack – led by Cork Constitution – are now 11 points behind Lansdowne with five rounds of the regular season remaining

Dave Mervyn -

”...that was how well we’d trained. Fairness to the guys; they’ve been excellent in the last two weeks.”

Iain Morrison - The Scotsman

"When he struck the drop goal I was just willing it had enough distance to go over."

Feel free to share any interesting links you spot yourself about t’internet by email, Twitter, Facebook, blog comment or carrier pigeon – whatever works for you. JLP
