Front Five - 17.08.20

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

Somehow I'll be getting a writeup
 for Bristol v Saracens done 
by Monday evening

Rugby has to make people care about these games. If it feels like they’re just being run off for the sake of it, then interest will wane very quickly.

Malachy Clerkin - Irish Times

"...coming back and being able to play for one of the Irish provinces and playing for Ireland as one of my main goals has really focused me..."

RTÉ Rugby

"Munster have had a number of great leaders and we had one of the greatest in Foley."

...Wasps maintained their strong pre-lockdown form to claim a fourth successive Premiership victory...propelling them into fourth place.

According to the Afrikaans newspaper Rapport, SA Rugby can no longer afford to host the tournament, therefore it wouldn’t make sense to bid.

Feel free to share any interesting links you spot yourself about t’internet by email, Twitter, Facebook, blog comment or carrier pigeon – whatever works for you. JLP
