Front Five - 03.02.19

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

Some of the over reaction by
both Irish and English "fans"
has been beyond laughable

...given the choice between being the hunters or the hunted, Irish rugby players instinctively prefer the underdogs’ basket.

Robert Kitson - The Guardian

“You have got to be prepared to give as good as you get, I don’t think we did that tonight."

Gavin Cummiskey - Irish Times

...thousands decided to abandon their team and flood for the exits. After the high of Fields of Athenry, only 13 weeks ago, this was a grim spectacle.

Patrick McCarry -

“Is the jersey mine to keep now? No, not at all. It goes week by week."

The Scotsman

Henry Slade scored a great try...but it hasn’t stopped Gordon Darcy...suggesting there was a forward pass in the lead up

Rugby Onslaught
