The Less Successful Sibling XV – The Lesser Loved Brothers Of Rugby

SECOND-ROW:

4. Jerry Sexton (brother of Johnny): He represented Leinster Rugby at schoolboy level but did not make the professional academy. The lock then moved to France to play lower level rugby before joining Exeter Chiefs.

Following further stints with London Irish and Jersey Reds, Sexton joined South African Pro14 side Southern Kings on a three-year contract before recently signing with Doncaster. Not a bad a player at all.

5. Stanley Meads (brother of Colin): His brother Colin is considered by some as one of the greatest rugby players 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.
