5 lesser known players who are brothers of International rugby stars

Over the years, we have seen many brothers enjoy successful playing careers like Billy and Mako Vunipola, Dave and Rob Kearney, and even the Curry twins Ben and Tom.

Even though one of the brothers garnered more fame than the other in some cases, both siblings are still well known among avid rugby fans.

However, that is not always the case…

1. Joe Ford

Joe joined younger brother George in moving to Leicester Tigers in the summer of 2017. Although he is a regular member of Tigers’ match-day 23, it is England fly-half George who has been pulling the strings in the No.10 shirt. A terrific playmaker, but it’s hard for him to escape the shadow of his England regular younger brother.
