Brothers on the pitch

Jacob and Ben Atkins both played last night at Quins.

Have there been other time in the professional era when Irish have fielded brothers on the pitch?

Yes. We even managed three on the pitch at the same time playing sevens.

Agh, Armitage of course. Any others? B-Z?

Not that I can think of, although probably forgetting someone obvious

All three Watsons got on the pitch for us, but never at the same time that I'm aware of.

Edit - I tell a lie. Looks like Anthony and Marcus were on the pitch for five minutes together

That sevens tournament there was the never to be forgotten moment, Armitage to Armitage, to Armitage, TRY!

Andy and Matt Symons were here for a while.

I don't think they played together here but Tagi and Tagi?

Andy never came, he signed but once we got relegated didn't join.

Florida, you are quite right. Memory playing tricks. Didn't Matt leave for Wasps, when we went down?
Wishful thinking on my part that they were here together. Just on our books but never played. That Coventry season was the worst ever. He and most of the team were clueless.(Sm63)

Coventry who didn't realise there was relegation... reflects badly on him but also on the powers that be who interviewed and hired him?

Sale regularly field a team with three du Preez brothers, two Currys and two James brothers.
