He ain't heavy...

For fans of utterly useless information, apparently there are 13 sets of brothers set to be involved at RWC 2011:
  • Manu Tuilagi (England) and Alesana Tuilagi (Samoa)
  • Sailosi Tagicakibau (Samoa) and Michael Tagicakibau (Fiji)
  • Salesi Ma'afu (Australia) and Campese Ma'afu (Fiji)
  • Jamie and Phil McKenzie (Canada)
  • Owen and Ben Franks (NZ)
  • Anthony and Saia Fainga'a (Australia)
  • Marco and Mirco Bergamasco (Italy)
  • Bismarck and Jannie du Plessis (South Africa)
  • Darryl and Ryan de la Harpe (Namibia)
  • Vakhtang and Zviad Maisuradze (Georgia)
  • Andrew and Roland Suniula (USA)
  • George Pisi and Tusi Pisi (Samoa)
  • Isitolo and Finau Maka (Tonga).
I know, I know, fascinating stuff. I may have mentioned previously that "interesting" is my middle name.

PS - I stand corrected by BigJocktheLock. There are of course 14 sets of brothers - how could I forget Sean and Rory Lamont?

That's funny, I'm pretty sure Scotland are also at the World Cup. Notice a glaring ommission?
