Front Five - 18.04.21

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

Reactions of some so-called "experts"
to Ireland v France has been pretty embarrassing
but definitely not worth sharing

Ireland’s discipline against Wales had been a problem, but they had managed to get away with it. Against France they didn’t.

"We had to earn our keep. And we had to show that we were there for the long haul even though we didn’t know what the long haul was"

Sinead Kissane - Irish Independent

Scotland were much improved since their thumping by England a fortnight ago but saw several opportunities sniffed out by a meaner Italian defence.

All going well, Energia Park is expected to be confirmed as the venue in the next 24 hours.

Gavin Cummiskey - Irish Times
(possibly behind paywall)

"I went to a summer camp for rugby when I was aged seven or eight...That was just magic."
