Front Five - 25.02.18

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

My official term to describe all the 
'what Ireland need to win Championship' 
talk is 'necessary evil' - I can't stand it
but I can't stop it either

...despite playing some fantastic rugby in short bursts, they did come up well short against the Irish and can have no real excuses.

Barry John - WalesOnline

The defeat leaves Ulster in fourth in Conference B, while Scarlets move to within three points of leaders Leinster.

RTÉ Sport

"I can't sit here as a female athlete and say that my job is just to perform, it's to encourage people as well."

Cian Tracey - Irish Independent

Great teams make their own luck, but England will probably feel very unlucky on the strength of this performance.

Rory Baldwin - Sottish Rugby Blog

...if Ireland were to beat Scotland at the Aviva in a fortnight and pick up a four-try bonus point, England will need to do likewise against France in Paris
