Tuilagi brothers: Samoa's Alesana and England's Manu

The upcoming Word Cup is set to be a family affair with no less than fourteen pairs of brothers taking part in the global showpiece.

Salesi Ma’afu will play in the front row for Australia while Campese Ma’afu will prop the Fijian scrum.

21-year-old centre Manu Tuilagi is the latest of six brothers to play international rugby although the first to play for England. Brother Alesana Tuilagi will play for Samoa.

Sailosi Tagicakibau will also feature for Samoa and will face brother Michael, who plays for Fiji, in Auckland on September 25.

Amongst the teams, Jamie and Phil McKenzie will play for Canada, Owen and Ben Franks for New Zealand, twins Anthony and Saia Fainga’a for Australia, Mauro and Mirco Bergamasco for Italy, Bismarck and Jannie du Plessis for South Africa, Darryl and Ryan de la Harpe for Namibia, Vakhtang and Zviad Maisuradze for Georgia, Andrew and Roland Suniula for the United States, George Pisi and Tusi Pisi for Samoa as well as Sean and Rory Lamont for Scotland.
