Front Five - 10.04.20

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

Paul Rees - The Guardian

"Probably the biggest thing from rugby that’s relevant to working in the ability to think and work under pressure in that fast-paced environment."

Murray Kinsella -

The 37-year-old stepped up from his position as attack and backs coach to replace the outgoing Dai Young

While it is hard to imagine a scenario where an audacious pass like this would ever be necessary in a match, it is still mightily impressive all the same.
