Front Five - 18.08.18

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

Disappointing result of course
but great to have Leinster Rugby back

Playing a high-tempo brand of rugby and hitting some scintillating running lines, the visitors built a 21-7 half-time lead and simply refused to let the pace drop.

"Both teams came to play positive rugby, multiple changes disrupted the rhythm quite a bit but these are the games you want to try them and overall I’m happy."

Simon Lewis - Irish Examiner

“Fans and players just want to get stuck in and play now. After a long pre-season, it builds up and you want to get back out.”

Sean Farrell -

Leinster's fifth round meeting with Toulouse will both be part of TV3's coverage of this season's competition.

Sam Roberts - Irish Independent

This is the first time that the top three nominees for each position have been listed in advance of the awards.
