Front Five - 07.04.20

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

I wouldn't rule out Laporte's World Club tournament completely, but the six-week timespan concerns me especially if that means the dreaded RWC-style midweek games. 4 pools of 5 (assuming standard round robin) with quarterfinals should take a minimum of 8 weeks to play out.

"EPCR does not believe it appropriate to highlight such discussions while the public health crisis due to Covid-19 continues"

Simon Lewis - Irish Examiner

The league are eager to avoid declaring the campaign null and void and are working on a number of outcomes

David Kelly - Irish Independent

"...I want to thank everyone in the HES and the frontline staff and your families for the continued work you are doing."


"The club is confident this was not an organised training session among the group, but rather one group of flatmates training in their ‘bubble’..."

Emma Duffy - The42.ie

It’s videos like which perfectly show why England coach Eddie Jones decided to put his faith in the Saracens centre.
