"The body position comes from Jim Telfer's coaching with the 1997 Lions, the length strength comes from the conditioning work with Margot Wells and I felt someone push me that last metre to the line, so I have to share the credit." - - England's Lawrence Dallaglio describes his fine individual try against Wales in the Six Nations Championship.

"I'd take 1-0, 12-10 whatever. This is a very young side and they will benefit from games like this. You can't be too critical of not taking chances when you win a match like this." - Terenure's Australian coach Scott Oakhill after Saturday's victory over Shannon.
