Meet the family: Rugby Uncle and Nephews

The Tuilagi family continues. 

Sadly, it is not the reincarnation of the miraculously powerful centre Manu, who continues to light up Welford Road with his incredible knack of scoring amazing tries.

Instead, it is his nephew Fred, a 22-year-old back-rower who also plays for Leicester Tigers.

Here are five pairs of uncles-and-nephews who played our great sport.

1. John Allan & Tommaso Allan

Italy international Tommaso Allan hails from a rugby family; his Scottish father William Allan and his Italian mother Paola Berlato both played in Italy, while his uncle John Allan earned 9 caps for Scotland and 13 for South Africa. The 25-year-old former Scotland U20 international has won 40 caps for the Azzurri, scoring 217 points.
