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

A lot of media focus on Scotland's win over us in 2010...

Cian Tracey - Irish Independent

“One key thing about them is their relentless phase play. Their ability to get into your 22 and suffocate you.“

Duncan Smith - The Scotsman

Simon Lewis - Irish Examiner

"No one is dispensable. Same as me, I am not indispensable. The players understand that."


"He has been doing a lot of weights with his shoulder… in my eyes he is a world class centre and he is going to get better and better."

Sean Farrell - The42.ie
