Front Five - 20.05.18

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

Great atmosphere at the RDS yesterday
but I can't agree with those who are
calling for all Leinster v Munster matches
to be played there...the game needs the
extra money from the Aviva crowds

The result made for different send-offs to two great players.

Brendan Fanning - Irish Independent

It's a high stakes send-off for the South African who is poised to depart the province with 206 appearances and a host of memories of his 10 year stay in Belfast.

Darren Fullerton - Belfast Live

The team who rarely make mistakes will face a side at Twickenham next Saturday that feeds off them, Saracens.

Paul Rees - The Guardian

The extra-time win against the three-time European champions gave Lyon a semi-final clash against Montpellier next weekend.


"It's easy to say in hindsight."
