Front Five - 07.03.19

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

Love watching the Irish Men's 7s
it's clear they've put in tons of work;
at time of posting they've done
incredibly well to reach the final

At (9:30am Irish time) today Ireland and Hong Kong will face-off and one side will secure a place on the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series 2020. 

Hong Kong 7s

In a massively physical encounter, scrappy Leinster couldn’t sustain control of the ball or territory 

Johnny Watterson - Irish Times

...the win ...keeps them on course for a place-off spot in the PRO14 and automatic entry to next season’s Heineken Champions Cup.

John Fallon - Irish Independent

Clermont Auvergne will reduce Toulouse’s advantage at the summit if they overcome Racing 92 on Sunday.

Beating this Cardiff Blues side by 24 points while scoring six tries is not to be sniffed at one week out from that quarter-final in Edinburgh.

Three Red Kings
