Front Five - 16.08.20

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

The only good thing about switching
my featured match of the weekend
from Blues v Crusaders to Bristol v Sarries
was that I didn't have to get up at 4am.
It wasn't entirely the players' fault
but that was a brutal 80 minutes.

"...there will be...a feeling of thanksgiving, if you like, that rugby in this country at last is back on its feet"

Brendan Fanning - Irish Independent
(behind paywall)

"I never wanted to get to the point where I was playing for the sake of it."

Graham Bean - The Scotsman

The game saw seven tries in total with the Highlanders running away with it in the second half to win 38-21.

Shay Waterworth - RugbyDump

 " looked as if Alex Goode, deputising at fly-half for Owen Farrell, had kicked Saracens home with four penalties."

As he breaks away into open, space it looks like there’s no one who can keep up with him – apart from one man.
