Front Five - 20.10.21

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

Had a chat with @IrishWomens
about plans for a Women's Lions
and what needs to be done here at home first
the pod should publish Wednesday afternoon

Joey Carbery, despite patchy form, has a lot invested in him, and...should be included, but will it be Harry Byrne or Billy Burns of Ulster getting that extra spot.

Patrick McCarry -

The latest update from Leinster is a positive one as several players will return to this week

James Roulston Mooney - SportsNewsIreland

Women’s rugby must forge its own identity rather than follow men’s model

Gordon D'Arcy - Irish Times
(possibly behind paywall)

A new coaching team...will be in place with Best, who won 124 caps for Ireland before retiring in 2019, taking charge of the pack.

RTÉ Rugby

“He’s at that stage where he’s comfortable and confident enough to share his thoughts and views, it adds so much to us.”

Cian Tracey - Irish Independent
