Front Five - 25.05.22

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

...what if it is Leinster’s excellence that has filtered upwards to Ireland’s national team rather than vice versa?

...they...will provide a formidable challenge for the best of the Top 14 and Premiership clubs, especially as the English clubs have undergone a significant cut in their salary cap

"...there was this nonsense coming out from the coaching team, ‘The brave and the faithful, nothing’s impossible, we’ll stand up and fight.’ That’s rubbish."

Eoin Harte - Pundit Arena

"Depending on his pain threshold, depending I suppose on his grip of the ball and depending on, well, the legality of it I think is okay."

Shane Donovan - Irish Examiner
