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

Leinster v Connacht writeup

...with the truncated Pro14 season now allowing only the Conference winners to progress to the final, Friday’s fixture has the feel of a decider.

Sean Farrell - The42.ie

Based on the game on Saturday, you would think it was Connacht, rather than Leinster, who had won the last 3 ProLeague titles.

All of this is on the basis that the vaccine rollout will not reach the majority of supporters until the third quarter of the year.

Gerry Thornley - Irish Times
(possibly behind paywall)

The suggestion might now be that revised protocols may reassure French sides.

Rúaidhrí O'Connor and David Kelly - Irish Independent

Another interesting suggestion...is...warm-up fixtures against Japan and...Leinster before the three-Test series against the Lions in London, Cardiff and Dublin.
