Nine rugby players forever living in the shadow of their more successful sibling

4. Tony Underwood

Tony Underwood is a Malaysian-born wing who played alongside his brother, Rory, in the England Grand Slam winning side in 1995. He and Rory played together at Leicester and both were gifted with pace as they played on opposite flanks terrorising opposition defences. It was Rory nevertheless who went onto break records, scoring 50 tries in 91 Tests.


5. Stanley Meads

He is the brother of Colin Meads, considered by some to be one of the greatest rugby footballers of all time. Stanley played as a lock, No 8 and flanker, and scored four tries for New Zealand in 30 games. Meanwhile, Colin won 55 caps between 1957 and 1971 and was named the country’s Player of the Century at the NZRFU Awards in 1999.
